About

While enjoying a tropical oasis in a relaxing atmosphere, you'll welcome visitors, answer questions, and assist guests in making sure the butterflies don't escape. Volunteers are encouraged to develop their butterfly knowledge and species identification skills as they spend time in a truly remarkable environment. During a typical volunteer shift, you might offer techniques for the best way to get a butterfly to land on a guest, gently remind visitors how fragile these flying creatures are, share about butterfly life cycles and help guests exit without any butterflies.

No previous experience required, just bring an enthusiasm for learning & sharing about tropical butterflies! This is a year-round opportunity and requires volunteers to commit to 4 hours per month for the duration of their volunteering. This volunteer position does not include any feeding, cleaning or care of animals.
