Join us for our 5th Annual Open House & Plant Swap. Learn how to create a butterfly habitat in your backyard and interact with butterflies.Tickets are donation-based with a suggested donation of $5 per ticket. Please visit the event webpage to get tickets.

This event is one day only, rain or shine. Parking is extremely limited. Please carpool if you can!

The Open House
Once a year we open our home to allow the public to tour our backyard butterfly habitat so that you can learn how to create a butterfly and pollinator friendly space, garden, or habitat.

Our primary source of funding for our organization is through the sale of common to rare butterfly host and nectar plants. We will have a selection of butterfly nectar and host plants available for purchase. We will also have a limited amount of free plants available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Plant Swap
The Plant Swap is our way of helping you and other members of our community to acquire plants at no cost to help you get started or supplement your garden. You are welcome to bring plants from your garden to swap with other participants.

Our Story
We are a small non-profit that provides education, community outreach, and help people create backyard butterfly-friendly habitats. We began transforming our two acres in 2012 and our efforts have been a work in progress ever since. We have hand-raised almost 20 different butterfly species from plants either naturally occurring or placed within our habitat. Our habitat has a lifetime count of 71 species of butterfly observed.

We welcome adults and children. We love all pets but please leave them at home today. We do not have a public restroom at this time. All areas are grass covered and fairly level. Please contact us if you have any questions or have special needs.
