Long Description:
The Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center is located at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia. It is North America's largest, glass-enclosed tropical conservatory.

The center was named in honor of Cecil B. Day, a philanthropist and the founder of Days Inn. His wife, Deen Day Sanders, donated artwork and financial assistance to Callaway Gardens in his honor.

Opening in 1988, the center houses over a thousand butterflies of over fifty different species. There is a theater room that continuously plays the film Wings of Wonder, an award-winning documentary that examines the life-cycle of a butterfly.

The center has received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification award which indicates that the building was designed, constructed, and is maintained in ways that are environmentally friendly.
