  • My husband and I went to visit the Butterfly Sanctuary this week and we both loved it. You can tell these ladies love what they do and love to share their knowledge with you. It’s a great spot for kids. They have a room with frogs from around the world, a room full of butterflies and a cool looking water creature called axolotl. I loved the butterfly room because you got to get up close to the butterflies and even had one land on me. The women working there were great! Ask them anything!
  • Educational, fun, very reasonably priced. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. We've been to other butterfly sanctuaries and this one is one of the best. It's small but effective. My kids loved the butterflies, frogs, and educational programs. They were entertaining for both adults and children. I highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back when we are in the area again.
  • The people here are so kind and welcoming. This place is great for kids of all ages and adults. There are 2 rooms with toys and art supplies, one of the rooms has frogs too. Then there is to butterfly room which someone is always in to tell you about the different butterflies. The also educational presentations for the kids multiple times a day.
  • We love this butterfly house! Mari and her staff know everything about bugs and butterflies. They have frogs and other creatures in their natural habitats and educational talks. Be check this place out, we love it.
  • Bear mountain butterfly sanctuary was without a doubt the best little field trip for our Girl Scout troop to attend! They had such a wonderful time, the staff is fantastic and Mauri is just so knowledgeable and very well versed with all of their butterflies and amphibians. All of our parents loved her! We will most DEFINITELY be back again! If you're looking for an event for your group please, check this place out!! You won't regret it!
