Know Before You Go

Whether you walk, bike or drive to the park, please proceed to the check-in booth in the lower level parking lot near the boardwalk path entryway to check-in and get your wristband which will grant you access to your butterfly tent. 

Bring your smartphone to access our touch-free resources via QR code. All you need is your smart phone camera!

All tickets must be purchased online via our ticketing platform. No tickets will be for sale at the door. Pending availability, you may purchase day-of tickets on your mobile device at the check-in booth.

Masks will not be required at the Butterfly Experience. Please monitor your own health and be respectful of staff, volunteers, and other guests. If you feel sick or are exhibiting any symptoms of Covid-19, please stay home!
