Green Bay Botanical Garden


Surround yourself with friendly pollinators and the plants they love in our first-ever Butterflies & Blooms exhibit! This exquisite and immersive house features a variety of butterflies and pollinators that are found in Wisconsin and gives visitors of all ages a chance to experience their beauty and radiance up close, while also learning about their important roles in nature and how we can best support them in our own backyards.

The 1,800-square-foot mesh butterfly house will be located in the garden patch across from the Stumpf Hobbit House. 300 new butterflies featuring more than 20 different species of butterflies native to Wisconsin (Monarch, Giant Swallowtail, Red Admiral, etc.) will arrive each week for a total of 4,500 butterflies throughout the entire summer!

A variety of family-friendly drop-in activities mixing pollinators, plants and play will also be available throughout the Garden.
