Butterfly Garden now open at Woodland Park Zoo

The seasonal Butterfly Garden is back at the zoo running through Monday, September 2.

The show has become a favorite of zoo guests, as patrons can take a walk among hundreds of free-flying butterflies and fresh flowers inside an enclosed space measuring nearly 3,000 square feet. The zoo has excellent signage about the life cycle of butterflies, and guests can watch new butterflies emerge from chrysalises before flying free in the garden. 

Take a few steps behind the Butterfly Garden to enjoy the year-round Pollinator Patio. This garden is full of ideas and actions to take on behalf of native pollinators such as hummingbirds, beetles, bees and flies – an engaging educational experience for all ages.
