Visit our expanded Texas Native Butterfly Tent featuring over 250 native Texas butterflies and a display of the Monarch butterfly metamorphosis- from egg to larva to chrysalis to adult. Learn why wildflowers need butterflies and which flowers you can plant to attract butterflies to your own backyard! Kids can actually enter the butterfly tent and observe butterflies as they feed on nectar from milkweed, pentas, lantana and exotic fruit. See how many butterflies species you can identify and take home your very own milkweed seed to plant. The Monarchs need our help! Please go to www.saveourmonarchs.org Facebook page to see how Wildflower! kids can help save the Monarch butterfly.
