Emergence Window

196 yards of pathways wind through the glass-enclosed Conservatory and lead to the emergence window, where butterflies leave their pupae and dry out their wings before they take their first flight.

Butterfly Species

Approximately 60% of the Conservatory’s butterflies come from butterfly farms in Costa Rica, El Salvador and the Philippines. Another 40% are raised in a quarantined greenhouse that is located behind the Conservatory.
