The event starts at 11:00 am and ends each day at 5:00 pm. This year, part of our proceeds will go to Family Promise of Carbon County. Family Promise of Carbon County provides services to homeless families within Carbon County. There will be crafts for the kids, lots of butterflies, frogs, door prizes, butterfly hatching kits, food and much more! The Butterfly Sanctuary’s regular season begins June 6, 2015.More information about Family Promise of Carbon County can be found at http://familypromisecarboncounty.com/home/

For our 13th year at the Sanctuary, we are adding new and exciting things.  Our frog room will house more  exotic and endangered species, including the mint-green poison dart frog. A new native caterpillar and host exhibit will be unveiled,   and  we will be bringing in a  wonderful new critter we imagine most visitors have never seen. Here is a hint / a Pokemon card was made of this one!

BIG PLANS for 2015 ! Check out our Facebook page.
