This year-round immersive exhibit features 40 species of native butterflies and moths, as well as other important pollinators like non-stinging native bees and fig beetles. 
 
The exhibit also features a variety of native pollinator-friendly plants. Panels throughout the exhibit educate visitors about pollinators' role in helping us grow the food we eat, their life cycles, how to create pollinator-friendly backyards and more. An education table in the exhibit gives visitors a chance to interact with BioPark staff and participate in hands-on learning.
 
During the winter, pollinators will not be active, but visitors can still come into the pavilion to view displays about how pollinators spend the winter.

Location

The exhibit is located on the west side of the Botanic Garden.
