Morpho Mardi Gras

February and March
Tuesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Escape the cold by visiting Morpho Mardi Gras: Bugs, Butterflies and Beads! Bring your Krewe to Mardi Gras inspired carnival during the months of February and March. Join the party at our Bugs on Parade, make a masquerade mask, and immerse yourself in a sea of blue as the Butterfly House floods the tropical conservatory with thousands of Blue Morpho butterflies. Inaugurate the season with these and other majestic creatures. 

Throughout the event, visitors will be able to see over 1,500 Blue Morphos in free flight while learning about the critical role butterflies play in nature, and how the Butterfly House is involved with butterfly conservation efforts in Costa Rica.
