Ways to Give in Support of the Butterfly House

The Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House is a division of the Missouri Botanical Garden. You can support the work of the Butterfly House with a fully tax-deductible gift in any of the following ways: paving stones, commemorative gifts, the annual fund, or by becoming a member.

Create Emerging Wonder: Support the Annual Fund

The Butterfly House offers special experiences for children. They enjoy aspects of the Butterfly House that adults may not notice, like the jewel-tone carapace of a beetle or the drying wings of an emerging butterfly.

The Butterfly House puts great effort into its role as a must-visit destination for families with young children. The Lopata Learning Lab, Caterpillar Corner, and Exploration Station offer daily hands-on activities. The new Nature TREK in the outdoor native garden engages adults and children with nature through their five senses. Special events include crafts, storytelling, and nature walks. Many educational programs, classes, and experiences are tailored for children age 2 to 10. Families can stay an hour or make a day of it.

You can help us engage children with the incredible creatures at the Butterfly House. Please consider making a special gift to support our programs and activities.
