Every day, through May, Tucson Botanical Gardens presents a live tropical butterfly exhibit. View colorful butterflies fluttering and marvel at nature's flying flowers at the new Cox Communications Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion.  Also on view is the Dart Frog Terrarium, an easily accessible interpretive display that insures the safety of our colorful, yet fragile, amphibians.  Be sure to check out the Chrysalis Exhibit, a fascinating look into the metamorphic life of a butterfly.  This exhibit helps support global efforts for sustainable conservation.
