It was a wonderful attraction which was located on private property. The owners live there, now quietly. Thank you for the many years of sharing with the local community.

This was a treasure. It closed in June of 2012. Unfortunately for those who missed out. We would have gone more often and told friends Had we known about it before we did. It was an awesome find on my birthday last year!

The kids are amazed by the number of butterflies. The numerous types of butterflies a holds the interest of even young children. It is located in Buena Vista, 1 block from the river. The drive from Albany/Corvallis or Salem/Independence is pleasant as well.
