Butterflies are some of the most beautiful insects on earth. Did you know that scientists believe there are between 15,000 and 20,000 different species of these colorful living rainbows? With so many different types, it’s not likely for us to be able to see each and every one. But, there IS a beautiful garden right here in Maine that allows visitors to see a wide variety of the ones that come flocking.

The Charlotte Rhoades Park and Butterfly Garden is located at 191 Main Street in Southwest Harbor, Mount Desert Island. You can call them on 207-244-9264.

Or, you can visit their website for more information including how to get your ticket to the this year’s butterfly release.
