Lukas Butterfly Encounter

 

Lukas Butterfly Encounter at Lukas Nursery is a unique experience for young and old alike! Situated on the grounds of a plant nursery, the butterfly encounter is a 4,000 ft conservatory filled with a variety of butterflies, flowers, quail and finches.  It also makes the perfect field trip for hands-on science, studying the life cycle of butterflies.

The highlight of the encounter is the special feeding room.  Dip your finger in the "butterfly food" and wait for a visitor to flutter by!

Or if you are really brave, invite more butterflies to land on your arm!

And no visit is complete without a visit to the gift shop where you'll find many special butterfly, gardening and unique items for sale.  Plus, you can purchase your own "butterfly plants" and caterpillars to raise and watch change into butterflies!
