Native butterflies swoosh around you in the delightful enclosure. The Butterfly House looks like a greenhouse, but instead of glass it is covered in fine netting that keeps the butterflies inside for your enjoyment. If the house is not open, butterflies can be viewed from outside.
See the butterflies laying their eggs. See the caterpillars emerge and develop into pupa. You might even see the magic moment when the adult butterfly emerges from the pupa.
The Butterfly House located at the Springfield Botanical Gardens. Volunteers take you inside the screened-in house, point out the various species and answer questions.
Open early May through September.
