Thursday, October 1, 2020

Through October 4, 2020, visitors to the outdoor Native Texas Butterfly House and Garden at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney, Texas will have the opportunity to walk among free-flying native butterflies and other pollinators.

Guests will be able to view butterflies up close while learning about their life stages and more. The butterfly house is regularly stocked with an assortment of native butterfly species, which varies throughout the exhibit. Guests may even get to see a butterfly emerge from a chrysalis. Inside the butterfly house, nectar plants are also available to feed the adult butterflies. There are even a few host plants for caterpillars to feed on. The Native Texas Butterfly House and Garden is included in the museum general admission and is free for Heard Museum members. This exhibit is open during the Heard's regular hours of operation. Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary is a Texan by Nature Conservation Partner.
