Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : July 2010

The Butterfly House in Chesterfield Missouri....

The Butterfly House in Chesterfield Missouri....

Have you ever lived in an area for a long time and still don't know anything about some of the things available?  That's me; I have lived in O Fallon Missouri since 1993 and have heard wonderful things about the Butterfly House when it opened in 1998 but have never paid it a visit.  After visiting it last week I am sure that I will be going back more often.

The Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House opened to the public in late 1998 and in 2001 it merged with the Missouri Botanical Garden, another place for me to visit.  The Butterfly House strives to teach students, with on-site education, of ALL ages about butterflies, conservation, ecology, gardening and scientific exploration.

The Butterfly House offers outreach programs that bring the wonder of butterflies and other insects to classrooms and groups throughout the metropolitan St. Louis area.  These outreach programs can be customized to meet the special needs of your group.

The Butterfly house is located in Faust Park in Chesterfield Missouri and is well worth your time to visit.  Check out the membership opportunities as well as becoming a volunteer or even having a private event.

Hours of operation*:  9am to 4 pm (closed on Mondays)

Memorial Day to Labor Day:  9am to 5pm

*the last ticket is sold ½ hour before close

Ticket Prices:

General admission: $6

Senior citizens: $4.50

Children: 3 - 12: $4

Children 2 and under: FREE

Members of the Missouri Botanical Garden receive free admission

Check out their website www.butterflyhouse.org or give them a call at 636-530-0076 for more information.
