Thank you all for another incredible year of SOAR – Tropical Butterflies. Please check back in Spring 2024 for information on our fourth annual year!
This popular exhibit features hundreds of tropical butterflies that you wouldn’t normally see in Southern California. Your journey begins as you step into the Host and Nectar Garden and wander through beautiful species that are part of a butterfly’s habitat. Next, you’ll stop by our Emergence Chamber where you may just see a butterfly emerge from its pupa! Next, you’ll enter the pavilion where you will have an up-close-and-personal experience with the hundreds of butterflies flying throughout the exhibit. While the pavilion provides many photo-worthy moments, there will be additional photo opportunities outside of the pavilion as part of SOAR.
NEW FOR 2023: Butterfly Feeding Experience
Want an even more unique experience? This year, guests have the opportunity to feed our butterflies! Purchase the Butterfly Feeding Experience for an additional $6 and choose from a flower vial or ring filled with nectar to use while inside the pavilion to help entice butterflies to come close to you for the optimum and most immersive experience. There will be one vial per Butterfly Feeding Experience ticket holder, which is returned at the end of the experience.
