Mariposa Monarca-Monarch Butterfly Exhibit

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Mariposa Monarca, a live monarch butterfly exhibit, returns this fall to the Desert Botanical Garden. This exciting exhibit features hundreds of live monarch butterflies in a beautiful and lush habitat. Guests can view these delicate creatures in the Marshall Butterfly Pavilion daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, September 28 through November 24, 2013.

Mariposa Monarca features a 2,400-square-foot walk-through butterfly pavilion where visitors learn about the magical metamorphosis of the monarch life cycle. The exhibit also describes the monumental migration of these amazing creatures and how they know when to depart for the winter, when to stop for food and where the females lay their eggs. Visitors will learn about conservation efforts and how scientists discover certain "migration mysteries" by tagging monarchs to track their migratory patterns.

Admission to the Marshall Butterfly Pavilion is free for Members and children under 3. $3.50 for the general public with paid Garden admission.

Mariposa Monarca is generously sponsored by Arizona Office Technologies with support from The Ferry Family Foundation in memory of Ernest S. and Virginia D. Ferry and the Consulate General of Mexico in Phoenix.
