Come experience SOAR – Monarch Migration and discover the journey of the mighty monarch butterfly family.

 Monarchs are one of only a few butterfly species that migrate. Come learn why, how and where they travel. Our immersive pavilion will showcase monarchs and mimics (other butterflies that may look like a monarch but aren’t actually). Our SOAR guides will help you become a butterfly detective, while our host and nectar garden will be planted with everything our western monarchs love, including milkweed, which helps repopulate this very special butterfly. 

Monarchs have a very important story to tell. While they may be the most well-known butterfly, their population is on a steep decline. Our exhibit will also touch on what YOU can do to help.

New EXCLUSIVE Opportunities!

SOAR Scheduled Butterfly Releases – Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 3:30 p.m., SOAR ticket holders can welcome our newest monarchs into the pavilion during these fun butterfly releases. Watch our trained staff carefully transfer our emerged butterflies from the Emergence Chamber to a butterfly carrier and over into the pavilion. Once safely inside the pavilion, gather around and watch the monarchs (and some monarch mimics) slowly explore their new home! 
SOAR Docents

We can’t SOAR without your help! If you’re interested in SOAR volunteer opportunities, please email
