The 2020 Butterfly House opening is delayed in order to comply with current social distancing guidelines.
Our enclosed Butterfly House is a guest favorite that attracts crowds throughout the season. Currently, the opening of the house is delayed due to COVID-19 social distancing recommendations. For the same reason, our Butterfly and Honeybee Festivals have been cancelled this summer. The safety of our guests, staff and volunteers is our top priority. NBGtogether.org
We will continue to monitor the situation and update this page accordingly.
In the meantime, there are many beautiful native butterflies throughout in the 2.5 acre Butterfly Garden that surrounds the Butterfly House! With this garden full of nectar and host plants, there are always opportunities to watch butterflies in action. Look for educational opportunities and pop-up outdoor experiences related to butterflies and other pollinators later this summer. And don’t forget to check out the butterfly maze located toward the back of the Butterfly Garden!
We look forward to reopening the Butterfly House as soon as it’s safe to do so. It’s an incredible immersive experience for young and old alike, and one of the greatest ways we can convey the importance of conservation through education!
