The Anderson Education Center is where many of our education programs are hosted. It houses the Purdy Butterfly House, the nation’s largest open-air butterfly house. This beautiful, soaring 9000 sq. ft. natural stone and steel beam structure overlooking Little Smith Lake is home to thousands of native butterflies, tadpoles, frogs, button quail, turtles and other critters. Waterfall, ponds, streams, lush vegetation and flowering plants invite visitors to experience this varied and colorful collection of flora and fauna.
Garden admission includes entry into the Anderson Education Center.
