After a brief pause last year due to COVID-19, the Garden’s Fall Butterfly Exhibit returns. Visitors can experience up-close interactions with a variety of butterfly species. The exhibit showcases the importance of Monarch butterflies in the Southwest’s ecosystem. Visitors can learn how these fluttery creatures care for and protect the desert environment. Watch these insects at each life stage in the butterfly pavilion, from caterpillars growing on host plants to chrysalises in the emergence chamber.
