The Florida Native Butterfly Society (501c3)

A nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect & raise our Florida Native Butterfly species through education, preservation & creating more green space. 

Mission: Our Southwest Florida educational facility is providing the appropriate educational programs and research projects that are helping butterfly populations flourish throughout our state! We thank you for your support of our facility and operation.

A vital part of your experience with us is our in house garden presentations. We focus on giving a visitor the educational tools they need to incorporate the necessary elements it takes to invite nature into their own backyards. Discover what is needed to attract hundreds of butterflies to your garden!

We are actively raising and releasing hundreds of 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.
