This popular attraction opens for the 2019 season on Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will celebrate 10 years of fostering a greater understanding of plant and animal relationships in order to promote the conservation and restoration of natural habitats which support all of life.  

Help us celebrate at 1 p.m. inside the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center. When Dr. Roston founded the Native Butterfly House in 2009, it was the first of its kind in Missouri. It saw 14,000 visitors in its first year and now educates some 40,000 visitors per year.

The Butterfly House is operated through a partnership with Friends of the Garden and the Springfield-Greene County Park Board and is staffed mostly by volunteers.  If you are interested in joining our docent team, please contact Friends of the Garden at 417-874-2952 or info@friendsofthegarden.org.
