Butterflies at Chatfield

May 27, 2017 - Sep 24, 2017

This seasonal habitat is home to hundreds of native butterflies such as swallowtails, monarchs, mourning cloaks and painted ladies.

There are more than 50 native plant species in this garden. The rest of the plants (about 20 species) were chosen for the nectar production for butterfly food and are not native species in Colorado.

Butterflies at Chatfield is presented to you through a partnership with Butterfly Pavilion and Denver Botanic Gardens.
