Stop here and explore the vast gardens and the Butterfly Conservatory, where more than 2,000 butterflies (45 international species) float and flutter among the brightly colored tropical flowers. The large, electric-blue Morpho butterflies from Central and South America are particularly gorgeous. Interpretive programs and other presentations take place in the auditorium and two smaller theaters. The native butterfly garden outside attracts the more common swallowtails, fritillaries, and painted ladies. Visitors are encouraged to wear brightly colored clothing to attract the butterflies.
