Join us for the opening of the new Butterfly House — the first of its kind in the region! Festivities include self-guided tours of the new Butterfly House and children's activities including games and a craft. Drop-ins welcome! (no advance registration required.)

Step inside and experience the habitat and life cycle of local butterflies and caterpillars. From egg to adult, there is always something interesting to see. Learn which plants provide food and shelter for our native butterflies and enjoy a unique, up close educational experience.

The Butterfly House at Ladew Gardens is made possible, in part, through the generosity of the Middendorf Foundation, Inc.
