Adopt a Butterfly

Continue your Butterfly Season with a science project the entire family will enjoy! During your visit stop by our caterpillar cart and adopt Painted Lady caterpillars. In just weeks you will witness the dramatic metamorphosis from hungry caterpillar to migratory butterfly, ready to release into your garden or neighborhood park. Caterpillars and butterfly kits start at just $6 and can be purchased onsite during your visit at the Kidspace caterpillar cart.

Painted Lady butterflies pass through Southern California on a migratory journey that can cover hundreds of miles. By protecting and releasing these beautiful butterflies, you support pollinators that are critical to a balanced ecosystem.

Let’s explore the world of butterflies together.
