Whispering Wings Butterfly Experience

Butterfly House destroyed at Brookgreen
Butterfly Exhibit after the storm of June 10, 2024


The Whispering Wings Butterfly Exhibit was irreparably damaged in an extreme storm event on June 10. 

If you would like to contribute to our cleanup and repair efforts following this storm, please donate here



Just outside of  and in the area of the Butterfly House, guests may notice milkweed gardens or stalks of milkweed, depending on how many Monarch caterpillars have found them! Brookgreen is a certified Monarch Waystation through Monarch Watch. If you want to use your home garden to provide a home and food for butterflies and caterpillars, head over to www.monarchwatch.com. There you can find all the details of the Monarch Waystation program and tips to make your garden a butterfly resort!

Part of Brookgreen’s mission is to educate our guests about the importance of native species to the environment. This exhibit enables us to share the importance and beauty of these fragile creatures.
