Celebrating 20 Years!
9:30am – 3:00pm
The Cox Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion is our tropical oasis featuring hundreds of butterflies that flutter around you as you walk, tropical plants not easily seen in the Southwest, and dazzling showy orchids from around the world. This year we are celebrating 20 years of Butterfly Magic!
As southern Arizona’s first and only tropical butterfly exhibit, we are honored to have set the standard for how these amazing species can and should be displayed. Butterfly Magic’s ability to constantly change and evolve has kept it a staple of Tucson that can be revisited time and time again. It has truly been a magical 20 years, and we look forward to 20 more!
