Dear Butterfly House friends, supporters, and community,

To say that a lot has changed since mid-March, is an understatement. We’re all dealing with a variety of changes that affect us personally and professionally.

Coming as no surprise, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the community efforts necessary to help contain its spread, we have canceled all of our in-person gatherings and events until further notice.

However, we recently launched our Online Bug Encounters on Facebook Live each Monday and Wednesday at 1:00PM, featuring a variety of amazing insects and arthropods. These programs can also be viewed anytime on our website.

In regard to school field trips, we are working to try and conduct these programs on-line. Please contact us for more information.

Lastly, in regard to our efforts to build a new facility featuring a tropical butterfly house …our efforts continue.

Because as upsetting and disruptive as all of this is, it’s important to remember that this is a moment in time that will pass. Now, more than ever, it’s important for all of us to remember the things we value and that inspire our lives …because the dreams we had yesterday will continue to be our dreams for tomorrow.

Stay healthy and be safe.
Jen Marangelo
Executive Director
