Butterflies in the Garden Temporarily Closed

Due to unforeseen circumstances and a high priority on guest satisfaction, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden | Botanical Research Institute of Texas today placed a temporary hold on ticket sales to the Butterflies in the Garden exhibit. 

Guests will be offered ticket refunds for this weekend March 4-6 and staff will reassess reopening early next week.  

“This is one of our beloved, premiere events and staff are disappointed but hopeful and excited that we may reopen soon,” said Bob Byers, executive vice president. “While there are certainly lots of butterflies in the Rainforest Conservatory, the numbers are not what we have promised our guests, nor are they at historical levels. Recent freezing temperatures and compromised transit are potential factors in the early reduced populations, though we are still assessing other causes.”  Experts are evaluating the possibility of increasing butterfly releases soon and an announcement will be made as soon as is possible. Please visit fwbg.org/butterflies for updates.
