About

Pacific Science Center is home to living exhibits that feature plants. The Tropical Butterfly House contains plants that provide butterfly habitat and ethnobotanical products. The Pollinator Garden features Northwest native plants that support local pollinators. Civilized Seeds showcases domesticated plants that produce food, medicine, dye, and other products.

Though these exhibits may appear effortlessly natural, they are supported by an enthusiastic team of Horticulture Exhibit Volunteers. Volunteers care for plants, keep exhibits looking beautiful, record citizen science data, and share exhibit science content with museum guests.
