Walk among free-flying native butterflies** and other pollinators in the Tenafly Nature Center Butterfly House & Pollinator Garden. See if a butterfly will land on your nectar stick or just watch them fly around you as they move between nectar plants. Observe butterfly chrysalis in the chrysalis box. Maybe you will be lucky enough to see a butterfly emerge!

The exhibit is located outside near our pollinator garden and visitors center. Filled with live native species of butterflies and chrysalis and offering visitors a total immersion experience for the young and old as it introduces guests to the wonders of metamorphosis.

This seasonal exhibit showcases several beautifully colored butterflies sipping nectar and taking flight, offering guests the opportunity to better understand and appreciate their life cycle and importance to the ecosystem. While you are visiting you are welcome to chat with staff or volunteers, ask questions, or simply relax and enjoy the space while butterflies flit and fly about.

Visitors are encouraged to show off pictures of their visit on social media using the #TNCButterfly or #Tenaflynaturecenter

**Butterflies are less active when temperatures are cool (below 70 F) or if it is overcast and/or raining.
