Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center at Callaway Gardens
Pine Mountain, GA 31822
706-663-2281 | 855-421-3035
Flights of fancy await you in the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center, where 1,000 tropical butterflies, representing more than 50 different species, flutter freely through the air. Tropical plants and birds, reside peacefully with the colorful winged jewels in one of North America's largest, glass-enclosed tropical conservatory. The award-winning film, "On Wings of Wonder," plays continuously on two wide-screen monitors in the center's multi-purpose room, explaining the lifecycle of butterflies.
Every visit to the Day Butterfly Center is a new experience because this is a living, growing environment. The butterfly conservatory was replanted in March 2005, so a brand new ecosystem grows here. The animal population and the plants will grow and change dramatically over time. Be sure to visit frequently and experience the changes in this living environment. The center was recently awarded the distinguished Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification award. The Day Butterfly Center's lobby includes a variety of artwork and a gift shop; a necessary stop for a souvenir of your visit.
