A LABOR OF LOVE FOR ALL CREATURES WINGED AND SMALL

bullet

Arnold’s Butterfly Haven is an extension of the animal conservation and rehabilitation efforts of Arnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, located just north of Okeechobee, FL. (Click here for map)
 

bullet

Our mission is to provide a much needed feeding and breeding ground for butterflies, which suffer from diminishing habitat due to human encroachment.  In addition, we provide a tranquil and enriching experience for entomologists, botanists, biologists, students or anyone who wishes to observe, study or photograph butterflies in an open, natural habitat.

Arnold’s Butterfly Haven is a half-acre, free-ranging butterfly garden in the shape of the Zebra Longwing, Florida’s State Butterfly. It contains over 2000 native larval and nectar plants, specific to indigenous butterfly species.
 

bullet

Unlike typical “staged and caged” gardens, in which butterflies are not only artificially introduced and contained, Arnold’s Butterfly Haven is an open-range, naturally occurring garden in motion, to which nearly 60 species of area butterflies are naturally attracted.

This amazing ecocosm was created entirely by volunteers! Tirelessly, they cleared and plowed the land. Diligently, they measured and plotted the design, and ultimately, they planted the garden with all the green and flowery things attractive to butterflies. Likewise, they continue to perform all the ongoing maintenance. Local area businesses also got involved, donating plants, building tools and materials.

You too can be a volunteer! We appreciate the efforts of others. You can help; be it working in the garden, providing garden materials, or even making a cash donation. Every bit of every dollar goes directly to the care and development of our Wildlife Center. Come and join us all year 'round. We are open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm EDT and 10:00 am to 5:00 pm EST.
