South Coast Botanic Garden Presents 2023 SOAR Butterfly Experience!

South Coast Botanic Garden 2023 SOAR Butterfly Experience!

Palos Verdes home owners can take a short trip to the South Coast Botanic Garden for their SOAR Tropical Butterflies exhibit from May 1, 2023, through August 31, 2023, featuring new species of tropical butterflies in the butterfly pavilion, and also a butterfly feeding experience.

The SOAR Tropical Butterfly ticket will allow you to enter the Host and Nectar Garden and wander through beautiful plants that are part of the butterfly’s habitat that you normally wouldn’t see in Southern California. In the next area you will stop at the Emergence Chamber where you may see a butterfly emerge from its pupa. Then you will enter the pavilion where you will have that close up encounter with hundreds of butterflies flying throughout the exhibit.

New this year, you will be able to feed the butterflies! Purchase the Butterfly Feeding Experience for an additional $6 and choose from a flower vial or a ring filled with nectar to use while inside the pavilion which will help entice butterflies to come close to you for the optimum and most immersive experience. There will be one vial per Butterfly Feeding Experience ticket holder which is returned at the end of the experience.

Timed ticket reservations will be required for all visitors due to social distancing. To enjoy this special SOAR Tropical Butterflies experience, the admission is $23/adult, $19/senior, $13/children, $19 student, $8 toddler 2-4, and to feed the butterflies there is an additional $6 per ticket.  Advanced reservations are still required, and it is recommended that you arrive 15 minutes earlier than your designated ticket time. The experience will be timed for 30 minutes, so make sure you get there on time. For more information or to purchase admission tickets click here. This also includes admission to the entire garden areas.

The South Coast Botanic Garden is located at 26300 Crenshaw Boulevard, Palos Verdes Peninsula.  Contact the garden early to make your reservations as there are a limited number of tickets.
