Tripod Photography

Relish a quiet hour of tripod photography in the tropical rainforest before we open our doors to the public.

Sessions are offered the first Saturday of the month and begin at 7:45 am.

Please note, this session is self-guided, and participants must supply their own equipment.

Session is limited to 25 participants.

Masks are required, and social distancing regulations will be enforced.

Additionally, sessions end at 9 am, but if you wish to stay longer you can purchase general admission tickets at the front desk.

If you wish to come and enjoy the peace and quiet of Butterfly Pavilion before we open, but do not wish to take pictures or set up a tripod, you are more than welcome to come and sit, read a book, or meditate, if all pathways for others are clear.

This time is not intended for photoshoots. If you wish to book a photo shoot, please contact
