Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary could  not open our exhibits in 2020. We are thrilled to tell you that we are the recipients of a COVID  grant and are moving forward with plans that will make it easier and safer to bring our nature-based experiences back to you. Watch for more information on our "welcome back" public event scheduled for May 29th and 30th. Our sincere thanks to all who kept us afloat in 2020 while waiting for the doors to open, we would not have a chance without you . Your admission passes will be good for any future public date and if you had failed caterpillars, we will be glad to replace them in the Spring. In these uncertain times, we don't know what our future looks like but have a crew of creative , committed people working hard to find solutions for the challenges of COVID-19. Updates will be posted of FB and our website.
