Annual event icon

March 2 through May 12, 2013
Desert Botanical Garden


WHAT:                  The Garden’s popular Spring Butterfly Exhibit in the Marshall Butterfly Pavilion returns for its 11th year during the months of March, April and May.  The Spring Butterfly Exhibit is open March 2 – May 12, 2013.  Hours are 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily.  Visitors can expect to see hundreds of butterflies housed in a spacious 36-by-80-foot flight enclosed lush garden that recreates a habitat most appealing to these fragile fliers.

The exhibit highlights the beauty and diversity of North America’s butterflies.  Expect to see Giant Swallowtails, Great Southern Whites, Zebra Swallowtails, Queens, Julias, Painted Ladies and Malachites among others.  Friendly Garden volunteers, or “flight crews” will be on hand to answer questions and share information about the butterflies and plants. There are special display areas featuring butterfly host plants and a Discovery Station where you have the chance to see our scaly-winged friends up close.  The Spring Butterfly Exhibit in the Marshall Butterfly Pavilion is supported by The Fred Maytag Family Foundation.
