Step into the magical world of butterflies, learn about their life cycle, see them flutter around, and have fun feeding them – all part of our live butterfly experience, for a $2 donation. All donations will go towards helping to save the Monarch.
The monarch butterfly is in trouble. Their numbers are down 90% of what they were in 1992. And the milkweed plant population, which is indispensable to the monarch, is also down 90%.
Milkweed plants are the only source of food for the monarch caterpillar. But these plants are rapidly disappearing, due to the loss of habitat stemming from land development and the widespread spraying of weed killer on the fields where they live.
