From caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly, your students will thrill at investigating the life cycle of the butterfly in the nation’s largest open-air seasonal butterfly house! The students will be immersed in a total body experience as they come face to face with thousands of native butterflies, tadpoles, frogs, tree frogs, turtles, button quail and other critters living in the waterfall, ponds, streams and lush vegetation of the Nature Center. Located right outside the Nature Center is the two-acre Children’s Garden which is actually eight gardens in one!
