South Coast Botanic Garden is soaring to new heights with the new butterfly experience, which features tropical butterflies in the garden's newly built pavilion.

The experience begins outside the pavilion in the new garden area featuring spring super bloom, butterfly-attracting flowers, and other pollinators. Throughout the experience, guests see butterflies in every stage of the life cycle. Inside the pavilion, butterflies can be viewed in their natural habitat. Lucky guests may even get a personal encounter with one of the creatures.

The Spring Exhibit featuring Tropical Butterflies runs from April 1 to July 31.

The Fall Exhibit (August 1-November 31) features Monarch Butterflies.
