Dear Friends,

The Butterfly Gardens is closed for 2023.  We truly appreciated the many visitors this season.  We had very few wild monarchs visiting our gardens, although we had many within our hoop house.  We intend re-open next season.

The real exciting news is this:  Please join our efforts to make the monarch butterfly as our State Butterfly.  You may send us an email supporting this proposed State legislation.  Email us at:

We encourage you or your family to become 2024 member of the Friends of the Butterfly Gardens, Inc.  Our yearly membership is $30 for an individual and $60 for a family that provides unlimited nature center admission during the butterfly season. Your support is vital to help increase the population of our endangered monarchs.   You may send your payment to our business office at 2508 N. Richmond Street, Appleton, Wi 54911.


Jack Voight, President
