Sponsor a Butterfly

Butterflies Alive! flutters back to the Museum on May 28 in the Sprague Butterfly Pavilion, and we hope you’ll join in the fun by becoming a Butterfly Sponsor!

Your Butterflies Alive! sponsorship:

  • ensures the butterflies have a healthy environment as well as plenty of flowers and fruit for nectaring
  • provides great benefits to you
  • is a great way to support one of our most  beloved exhibits!   

Early sponsors will see their names on the Wall of Wings at our Members’ Party on Friday, June 10.

For more information or to become a sponsor visit
