The purpose of the GT Butterfly House & Bug Zoo is to create an attraction that would provide the community education and a fun place to take kids to learn about the wonders of butterflies and their bug relatives.  

As the Zoo grows in it's mission, there are many plans ahead!

  • Free educational presentations about some of the zoo's most popular animals.
  • Junior Zoo Keeper Classes- Allowing kids to come and spend a few hours with the zookeepers and help feed the butterflies and bugs, along with making a fun craft!
  • Outside Nature Walk-With help from Dr. Duke Elsner, our zoo will create a nature walk around the zoo's property to teach about native plants and the animals that live nearby.
  • Classroom presentations-Assisting teachers in science and biology, with a strong message of conservation and stewardship of the planet.
  • Parties/Weddings-Let us work with you to make a memory in our Butterfly Garden.  We'll offer wedding and party packages soon.  Email your inquiry!
  • Engaging classes offered through Grand Traverse Conservation District-Let us help you find your child's next outdoor adventure!
