Due to the cold and rainy weather, the butterfly habitat will be closed for viewing tomorrow. The gift shop will remain open.
Finally! Tomorrow should be a good day to see the butterflies! Stop by and check it out before the season is over. 11am to 4pm!
If you are considering coming to visit the butterfly habitat on Sunday, we highly suggest that you give us a call first: (774) 413-9310. The habitat portion (but not the gift shop) might be closed because of recent weather.
The weather isn't going to be great for butterflies, so as we previously mentioned, we'll be shutting down the butterfly house to protect the butterflies.
However, the gift shop will still be open. Come get a t-shirt!!
The weather from Hurricane Jose is going to make it downright miserable for our butterflies!
As such, we are going to be closed for the next couple days, so we can batten down the hatches. and protect our butterflies and plants!
Ann will be there keeping an eye on things, which means the gift shop will still be open!
Check back for habitat updates in the following days.
Thankfully, the fog has dissipated and we have another wonderful day for butterfly viewing. Stop by before 4pm to make sure you get your chance to see the butterflies before the season is over!

Today is a perfect day to visit the habitat! Lots of very happy butterflies will be fluttering about as the weather is expected to be perfect.

Tomorrow's weather is looking perfect for butterflies!
We still have plenty of butterflies flying, and a nice variety too!
Stop by to see: monarchs, painted ladies, buckeyes, question marks, commas, swallowtails pipevine and eastern blacks!
The butterflies are really hoping the forecast holds true and we get some sun tomorrow afternoon!
If the sun is shining, the butterflies will be anxious to eat! And that would make a great time to stop by for some close-up photos.
We're going to try a new feature for the website. Updating you often on the conditions of the habitat!
Due to tomorrow's expected rain, we are anticipating low activity in the butterfly house. The gift shop will still be open, but we'd recommend a different day for butterfly viewing!
We just wanted to give you a heads up that we will have a limited butterfly population for these first few weeks. Sadly, the weather really played havoc with our stock, and wild butterflies this year. The populations will need time and warm sunshine to fully recover.
We are still open and have some for you to see, but the selection is not as varied or numerous as it usually is by now.
We really appreciate your patience and your continued support!
We are open now!
However, we just wanted to give you a heads up that we have limited butterflies. This cold and wet spring has not been good for mating and raising butterflies. Our varieties and numbers are low right now, but will continue to grow as the season progresses.
We appreciate your patience, and we hope you stop by regardless!
We're delaying this year's opening thanks to the weather and its impact on our butterfly populations.
Anticipated Opening Date: June 2nd
Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $4 for children.
Seasonal passes are available as well: $15 for adults, $12.50 for seniors, and $10 for children.
We hope to see you soon!
