Managed By: Icon Here Butterfly Houses
Description:
Butterfly Houses are places where they have made an artificial environment where tropical butterflies can live outside their native habitat.
Expanded Description:

The Houses are supplied with chrysalis from butterfly farms in the tropics.

When the chrysalis get to the Butterfly House, they allow them to hatch into butterflies, and release them into the house, where they can be enjoyed by visiters. The houses are full of native plants and flowers, and are very warm and humid.

Butterflies only last around two weeks, and then they die. More are always being hatched and released into the house.

Instructions for Posting a Butterfly Houses Waymark:

1. Must be a Butterfly House that is covered with an artificial environment. Open-air gardens created for native butterflies to visit are not allowed.

2. I am going to give special consideration for anyone who wants to log a find of a Butterfly Farm in the tropics, since there are only a few.

3. Post a picture of the sign for the House, and a picture of the building itself. If you can, please post a picture from the inside of the house. Pictures of the butterflies would be great, too!

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:

Please post a description of your visit. Any photos that you have would be great, as well!
