Butterflies Alive Exhibit at the Museum

The butterflies are fluttering back!

Butterflies Alive! returns to our Sprague Butterfly Pavilion beginning May 29. You’re invited to support this beloved exhibit by purchasing a 2021 Butterfly Sponsorship. All levels of sponsorship will be recognized and celebrated. Donate by May 20 to see your name or your family’s name on the Wall of Wings on opening day! For questions about sponsoring a butterfly please email sclement@sbnature2.org or call 805-682-4711 ext. 110.
