The official 2017 seasonal grand opening of the Purdy Butterfly House is something you won't want to miss! Be entertained by our turtles, pond sliders, button quail, stunning floral displays, and, of course, twelve native species of colorful butterflies! Amanda Maples, HBG Horticulture Specialist, and Soozi Pline, Director of Education, will greet you ready to answer questions about the plants and animals that call the Purdy Butterfly House their home! This year the Education and Horticulture Departments host a butterfly release from 10-11 am, beginning with a presentation in the Anderson Education Center classroom followed by time in the Purdy Butterfly House celebrating the new season. Every participant will be given their own tiny take-out box filled with a fluttering butterfly, ready to make the Purdy Butterfly House their new home!
