Butterfly Tribute Program:
Did you know?
Butterflies are released in the Purdy Butterfly House from May-September each year.
Last year approximately 9,000 butterflies were released at Huntsville Botanical Garden.
What is a Butterfly Tribute?
The release itself is a symbolic gesture in which the donor may recognize the person or family of their choice. Donors select a butterfly watercolor print created just for the Huntsville Botanical Garden by local artist Susan Goodman. This donation helps to populate the John and Tine Purdy Butterfly House with native butterflies throughout the season.
The cost of each Butterfly Release is $40. There are five beautiful prints in the series from which to choose. These are framed in our Shoppe at the Garden for you to view. Once submitted, we mail an 8.5 x 11″ print, suitable for framing, to the designee. Included is a custom card naming the person the gift is in memory or honor of and the name of the donor.
Butterflies are available for viewing at the Purdy Butterfly House May-September.
