Tucson Botanical Gardens presents BUTTERFLY MAGIC, A TROPICAL WONDERLAND IN TUCSON from October 2015 to May 2016 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. October means the start of Butterfly Magic in the Cox Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion. Butterfly Magic is Tucson’s only tropical butterfly greenhouse and one of the most diverse in the country. Guests can marvel at the spectacular sight of hundreds of butterflies fluttering about amongst lush tropical flora. Throughout the season, over 120 different varieties of butterflies
from 11 different countries make their way to the Tucson Botanical Gardens. The butterflies come to the Gardens in their pupae stage and emerge in the chrysalis exhibit right in front of guests’ eyes! The Butterfly Magic greenhouse is also home to over a dozen colorful South American dart frogs that can be seen hopping throughout, as well as a spectacular tropical plant collection. All of these components make Butterfly Magic a must-see attraction for Tucsonans and visitors.
