BUTTERFLY HOUSE AT COX ARBORETUM
Our native-Ohio Butterfly House enables children and adults to view native butterflies and moths in all stages of metamorphosis. For 2014, the Butterfly House will be open July 7 - August 29 daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with knowledgeable volunteers on hand from 10 a.m. to noon Monday-Saturday and noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday. Exploration will bring discoveries about the various species of butterflies and plants making each experience a personal connection with nature.
Species such as painted lady, red admiral, monarch, giant swallowtail, black swallowtail, spicebush swallowtail, tiger swallowtail, luna moth, Cecropia moth, Polyphemus moth and pipevine swallowtail are featured.
The mission of the house is to exhibit native butterflies in a natural environment, captivate visitors, inspire protection of threatened habitats, and educate the public on butterfly/moth life cycles and their plant partnerships.
