Panhandle Butterfly House Opens

Panhandle Butterfly House Opens

After a rather mild winter, spring has sprung with a vengeance!  The Panhandle Butterfly House is very much alive with spring and will finally open its doors to the public on 24 May at 10 am.  Our newly designed outdoor gardens are a must see.

Located in Navarre Park on Hwy 98, the Panhandle Butterfly House will be open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays throughout the summer.  Tours for groups of 10 or more are available Monday through Wednesday.  Reserve a tour by visiting our website at .

We had a delayed opening this year due to a shortage of volunteers so we want to recognize the time and efforts of returning veterans and the generosity of many new recruits.

A limited quantity of nectar plants will be for sale and UF/IFAS Santa Rosa Master Gardeners will be available to answer your butterfly gardening questions.

Jimmy Chandler, a Navarre resident holding a MA in classical guitar and currently both a NWFSC classical guitar Instructor and local instructor will be providing classical guitar music for your listening pleasure helping to provide a relaxing atmosphere in the gardens.

Providing a unique educational opportunity for local residents, the Panhandle Butterfly presents a wonderful lesson on how to create a habitat for our local butterflies.  All stages of the butterfly life cycle may be observed and both nectar and host plants.

The Panhandle Butterfly house depends on the generosity of its visitors and grants to sustain this incredible educational exhibit.  There is no admission, but your donation is appreciated.
