By Chattahoochee Nature Center July 1, 2020

The Chattahoochee Nature Center's most popular exhibit returns for a colorful summer! This special outdoor exhibit is open daily until Aug. 2 and is included with General Admission and FREE to CNC Members. Visitors must purchase admission tickets in advance, which includes a date and time to visit the center. Members will also be required to make a reservation for their visit. The date and time on your admission ticket will double as your designated time to visit the encounter.

The Butterfly Encounter is a highlight of summer fun at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. Get up close with hundreds of native butterflies in an enclosure full of vibrant nectar plants. Watch these colorful creatures dance from flower to flower and even get a chance to feed them with a nectar stick. Bring your camera to capture some remarkable images of these elusive insects.

A new wildlife habitat has been created around the outside of the Butterfly Encounter and expanding to permanent plantings inside the encounter. The wildlife habitat will provide shelter and food throughout the year to birds, insects, and small mammals.

Our Butterfly Encounter attendants will be on hand to help you learn all about these amazing pollinators, and host and nectar plants will be available for sale daily so you can start your own pollinator garden.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for our visitors, we are drastically reducing the capacity of the outdoor Butterfly Encounter tent to ensure space for social distancing. Center-wide policies and procedures have been implemented to offer the best experience possible. Updates can be viewed on the “Plan your Visit” page on the CNC website.
