Allot plenty of time for your visit to the magical butterfly house that features an indoor butterfly flight room and "flutterarium."

Use a magnifying glass to get a closer look at the species at the sanctuary.
Visit the butterfly hatching area. Watch as the kids put puzzles together and engage in educational activities.
Butterflies aren't the only critters to call the sanctuary home. Enter the frog room and...
