Enclosure

Our Mobile Pavillion

Mobile Enclosure

Our pop-up enclosure sets up within minutes. With a few sizes to choose from, we can fit within most venues and spaces. 

Native Butterflies

We fill the enclosure with butterfly species that are native to the region. Most of which we privately breed ourselves. 

Native Host Plants

Plants that butterflies like to feed or lay eggs on are placed into the enclosure to provide a place for them to land on to rest.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to book this for a private event?

The simple answer is ''It Depends". We cost our events based on how many people will be participating. This is how we gauge how many butterflies to bring and how much staff is required to be present.  Feel free to Contact Us for our rates.

What locations do you service?

Our traveling butterfly exhibit can service any location in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and San Diego County. Depending on the distance, we may charge for mileage.

What Kind of Butterflies Are Available for the events?

Currently, we work with only native California species. These are the butterflies that you may commonly see in your gardens or in the outdoors locally. To list a few, we carry Monarchs, Painted Ladies, Giant Swallowtails, Red Admirals, and Cabbage Whites. These may vary from season to season. 

How do you have these butterflies?

We breed and rear many of the butterflies from their caterpillar stage at our private facility located in Philips Ranch, CA. The butterflies we house often reproduce, and we dedicate continuous care and attention to their well-being. Additionally, we collaborate with other reputable breeders in our efforts. 

How do you transport the butterflies?

The butterflies are transported to the events in small enclosures that are placed in coolers with ice-packs. The ice keeps them calm during transport. After the events, they are carefully placed back into the enclosures by our butterfly handlers. 

Do you do public events?

Absolutely! We frequently receive invitations to participate in outdoor markets, festivals, trade shows, and more. If you believe our presence would enhance your event, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We'd love to hear from you.

What is that liquid on my q-tip used to attract the butterflies?

The liquid we dip your q-tip in is a solution made of sugar, salt, and water. Butterflies love this mix because it gives them the energy they need to fly. 

Can I touch the butterflies?

We highly advise against handling the butterflies with your hands. These delicate creatures should only be handled by professionals. If a butterfly happens to land on you, there's no need to worry. Simply approach one of our handlers, and they will assist in safely removing it before you leave.

Just a few kind words from our clients...

Just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of Science Night! Your presence and energy made the event awesome. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, creativity, and enthusiasm with our community. We truly appreciate your support and look forward to future collaborations.

“The Flutterby walk-in butterfly tent made our Spring Fling not just fun, but interactive and educational. There was a line outside the tent all day and parents and children alike wanted to go inside and see the butterflies up close. I believe the reason we had the crowds that we did is because we offered this amazing and unique experience.”
