We are actively raising and releasing butterflies each week to share with our guests the amazing life cycle of butterflies. We are one of the few facilities in the nation that can actively breed Lepidoptera because we do not have exotic species. Our focus is our incredible diverse and beautiful Southwest Florida Butterflies and Moths.
We hope to give our guests the information, education and inspiration to get outside and plant butterfly gardens no matter where they reside. It truly is a remarkable feeling when you transform your yard with colorful blossoms and a healthy butterfly population.
