Breakfast With the Butterflies

Each fall and spring, the butterflies come out for Desert Botanical Garden’s special butterfly exhibit, including events and activities especially for children and the inner child in all of us. On March 6th and 7th, enjoy a catered breakfast, followed by children’s entertainment and butterfly-related activities. However, only the kids go home with a special gift—their butterfly wings to wear! Hundreds of butterflies flit about in a spacious 36-by-80-foot flight enclosed lush garden that recreates a habitat that is most appealing to butterflies. Butterflies of bright oranges, yellows, bright whites, and lilacs will astound you. Breakfast will be served buffet style from 9 to 10 a.m., followed by entertainment and activities from 10 to 11 a.m. Guests will be seated together at tables of ten.
