It was a bit cold so far this year, but I really enjoy this attraction and try to get by here a few times a year to explore and see the butterflies

A great way to spend an hour or two! There are very unique garden areas outside with a lot of photo opportunities. The conservatory inside isn't very large and butterflies were not on site during our visit.

This is a remarkable place. It joins the River Trail; a great place for bicycling or walking - I have seen deer, raccoons, badgers, beavers, grey herons, horned owls, red-tail hawks, a red fox, all sorts of smaller birds, rabbits, and my favorite: the red-winged black bird here. The Botanical Gardens is just that: exotic tropical flora and many varieties of flowers. There is also a Butterfly House with a huge variety of butterflies. Ms. Harris and a non-profit organization, took many years to collect and save the money to build this dream place. It took a great deal of effort just to acquire the land. Much of the upper part of the building is made of highly insulative but transluscent Lexon. The thick greenhouse glass can not be broken by hitting it on the surfaces with a sledge hammer - it can only be broken on the edges. This glass is almost a quarter inch thick and very heavy: these glass panels were ordered from Texas. There is a large outdoor fantasy area especially for children. Anyway, there is much more to this place than I am telling you. It is very much worth the visit.
