The National Butterfly Center is a private nonprofit organization. This 100-acre native plant botanical garden and wildlife preserve has been established by the North American Butterfly Association to advance our mission of education and conservation. We are not state or federally-funded; so we rely entirely on donations and income from operations to support this wild butterfly sanctuary, in the butterfly capitol of the country!
We greatly appreciate our visitors, and hope to see you soon.
PLEASE NOTE: There is an additional $5 pp charge for all visitors while the Butterfly Whirl Contemporary Quilt Art Exhibit is here. See it here, before it takes flight across the country, Jan 11, 2015!
