Spring Into March at the Desert Botanical Garden Butterfly Exhibit

Take a stroll through the beautiful Marshall Butterfly Pavilion and find yourself surrounded with hundreds of fluttering butterflies. Watch as butterflies sip nectar from plants, perch in the sun and if you are lucky, maybe even land on you. Special displays feature butterfly host plants and an activity tent where you can see these scaly-winged friends up close.

The exhibit, which opens this weekend, highlights the beauty and diversity of North America’s butterflies. Expect to see Giant Swallowtails, Great Southern Whites, Zebra Swallowtails, Queens, Julias, Painted Ladies and Malachites among others. Friendly Garden volunteers, or “flight crews” will be on hand to answer questions and share information about the butterflies and plants.
