Butterfly Houses and Farms
Where can you go to learn more about butterflies? A great place to observe and study Lepidoptera is at a butterfly
house, where live butterflies are in an enclosure and you can walk through their habitat. Or you can visit a public butterfly garden to see live butterflies visiting native plants. These exhibits educate and encourage people to support the creation and preservation of native butterfly habitats. The following places to visit are arranged alphabetically by state.
