Monarch Magic is back!

For a limited time, we invite you to once again walk among hundreds of monarch butterflies in Butterfly Pavilion’s indoor tropical conservatory, Wings of the Tropics.

September 13 – 30th 2020

Tickets for Monarch Magic will go on sale August 30th!

Along with the beauty of these incredible butterflies in flight, discover the wonder and mystery of their incredible 3,000-mile journey from the northeastern United States and Canada to their overwintering grounds in southwestern Mexico every year, their awe-inspiring life cycle, their lesser-known role as pollinators and more. In addition, uncover the challenges facing these animals today and the small actions you can take to have a big impact on their conservation.

Additionally, celebrate World Monarch Day with us on Saturday, September 21st!


Special Monarch Magic Admission tickets will go on sale August 30th and will only be available while supplies last!

Monarch Magic experience is free for current Butterfly Pavilion Members (plushie is only available with ticket purchase.)

Purchase Pollinator Packs

 

While monarch butterflies migrate through Colorado in September, you can make your own monarch habitat to support their journey in your backyard!! Our Fall pollinator packs will ensure that butterflies and other pollinators have the right plants they need for food and shelter.

Butterfly Pavilion will begin accepting advance orders for 6-packs of native pollinator-attracting perennials on September 12, with curbside pickup on Saturday, September 19. Check back here for more information!
