Butterfly Conservatory | Niagara Falls

Located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, visitors to the Butterfly Conservatory are transported to a tropical paradise full of lush vegetation, trickling waterfalls and thousands of vibrantly coloured butterflies. Over 2,000 butterflies, made up of 45 different species, call this beautiful space home. The self-guided walking tour of the Butterfly Conservatory begins with a short, informative video presentation.

Many of our butterflies are imported from tropical regions around the world. Approximately 60% of our butterflies come from butterfly farms in Costa Rica, El Salvador and the Philippines. Another 40% are raised in a quarantined greenhouse that is located behind the Conservatory.
