Westminster, Colo. – Sept. 27, 2018 – Colorado’s Butterfly Pavilion has launched a new brand and website signaling its transformation into an asset for the global community focused on invertebrate science, conservation and education, in addition to being a beloved destination for kids and families looking to learn more about these unsung heroes of life.
“Butterfly Pavilion deserves a brand that not only captures the imaginations of kids and their parents, but also speaks to the global community of scholars, researchers, scientists and educators who will flock to Butterfly Pavilion as the hub of invertebrate science,” said Patrick Tennyson, Butterfly Pavilion’s president and CEO.
The new brand reflects Butterfly Pavilion’s status as an accredited zoological organization engaged in invertebrate research and conservation projects all around the world, its role as an educational institution serving 60,000 kids every year, as well as the sentimental place it occupies in the hearts of generations of Coloradoans as a cherished community and cultural asset. It also highlights the critical role invertebrates play as the foundation of virtually every ecosystem on the planet.
The website has a radically simplified architecture making it lightweight for quick uploads, optimizing it for mobile devices, as nearly 65 percent of Butterfly Pavilion guests access the site through that platform as they look for things to do with their families. Information about exhibits, events, and news on Butterfly Pavilion’s research and conservation efforts is easily accessible. Buying tickets and memberships, donating, and signing up for programs and classes are streamlined for the user’s convenience.
“As we undergo this transformation, Butterfly Pavilion will continue to drive conservation efforts and shape the perceptions of future generations of scientists, ecologists, educators and decision makers,” said Tennyson.
Butterfly Pavilion is open 9am to 5pm daily at 6252 West 104th Avenue in Westminster, Colo. Visit the website at www.butterflies.org.
