The new Butterfly Pavilion will be a new, state-of-the-art learning and research facility in Broomfield, Colorado that will serve as the preeminent local, national and global hub for invertebrate knowledge, conservation and education.
The facility will inspire both appreciation and action by providing up-close encounters with animals and natural environments, informed by decades of educational and scientific expertise. In addition, the facility will sit in a one-of-a-kind neighborhood designed to support pollinators in their natural habitats, while providing new homes, schools, shops and restaurants for residents and visitors alike.
