Butterflies are back and better than ever at the new 3,200 square foot Butterfly Pavilion located near the Harriet K. Maxwell Desert Wildflower Loop Trail. The new Exhibit features hundreds of live, fluttering butterflies among the desert landscapes and stunning views of the Papago Butte, as well as a caterpillar nursery and emergence chamber. It promises to be delightful, magical and educational for children and adults.

The Butterfly Exhibit will provide visitors an opportunity for up-close interaction with butterflies while learning about their role as pollinators, characteristics of their lifecycles, and our conservation efforts to protect them.

The Butterfly Exhibit is open daily through May 14, 2017.

Construction of the new exhibit was possible by generous donors who have made gifts to The Saguaro Initiative campaign. Leading the way in support of the new Butterfly Exhibit is the APS Foundation whose financial donation allows for the construction of the APS Foundation Butterfly Landing. Located just outside the Butterfly Pavilion adjacent to a Monarch butterfly garden display, the APS Foundation Butterfly Landing will provide a dedicated space for school groups, children and families to gather and participate in education programs. Also featured is the Diana E. and Paul B. Smith Butterfly Nursery, which provides views of 125 chrysalises on display.
