About Us

Our vision for the Butterfly House and Bug Zoo started in 2012.  After careful consideration, a site was chosen for the zoo in the Spring of 2014.  Construction of the Butterfly House and the zoo exhibits were completed and ready for visitors in October 2014.

The purpose of the GT Butterfly House & Bug Zoo is to create an attraction that would provide the community education and a fun place to take kids to learn about the wonders of butterflies and their bug relatives.  As the Zoo grows in it’s mission, there are many plans ahead!
