Admire the beauty of more than 500 butterflies from here and elsewhere that swirl freely inside our specially designed aviary.
You will observe the complete life cycle of the butterfly: from egg to caterpillar, from caterpillar to chrysalis and finally from chrysalis to the birth of the butterfly.
The life cycle of the butterfly is constantly renewed before your eyes, to your great amazement. You might even have the chance for one of our butterflies to land directly on you. Visiting our aviary is definitely an extraordinary experience: butterflies and birds in the wild, bearded dragons, turtles and frogs are there!
Your visit to the Butterfly Garden will also teach you about the impact of climate change on these colorful insects, as well as the effect of pesticides on these wonders of nature.
As with the Educational Farm, the butterfly experience is in the form of a self-guided visit, but once again, there are always staff members at your disposal for questions or additional information.
Open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
*Strollers are not allowed in the Butterfly Garden.
“We work with butterfly breeding farms based in the Philippines, Costa Rica, Mexico and Malaysia. Some butterflies come from tropical places. The Butterfly Garden is a tropical greenhouse, a place where it is warm, for the development and well-being of the butterfly. Raising butterflies is a delicate step, as it takes two days to a week before the butterflies emerge. Such initiatives are important to help young people understand the need for farms, and to make them aware of the beauty of insects."

"...une étape délicate, nécessitant entre deux jours et une semaine avant qu'émergent les papillons. De telles initiatives sont cruciales afin d'aider les jeunes à comprendre l'importance d'avoir des fermes, et de les sensibiliser à la beauté des insectes."
