SOAR – South Coast Botanic Garden Foundation
We’re soaring to new heights with our new butterfly experience.
SOAR features tropical butterflies in our newly built pavilion. Your SOAR ticket allows you to enter the pavilion, but the experience begins outside with our new garden area featuring host and nectar plants, and an emergence chamber. Throughout the experience you’ll see butterflies in every stage of the life cycle. Once inside the pavilion, you’ll have the opportunity to watch them in their natural habitat, and, if you’re lucky, have a personal encounter with one! Most important, every step of the way you can learn all about these beautiful insects while having an experience to remember.

Spring Exhibit (April 1-July 31) Features Tropical Butterflies
Butterfly Update: The pavilion is currently filled with beautiful Painted Ladies, and more tropical butterflies are on their way soon. Due to the ice storm in Texas, the butterfly farms we were working with were destroyed. As we work to receive shipments from new farms, the Painted Ladies are putting on a show!
