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. Waterfall, ponds, streams, lush vegetation and flowering plants invite visitors to experience this varied and colorful collection of flora. Peak butterfly season is from May through September.
The Purdy Butterfly House and Anderson Educational Center is closed for repairs.
Garden admission includes entry into the Anderson Education Center
