KAREN WERTHEIMER BUTTERFLY HABITAT

Populated with native butterflies and flora, a visit to the Karen Wertheimer Butterfly Habitat is a favorite local Hilton Head Island activity. This greenhouse garden and butterfly exhibit is filled with nectar plants to feed the butterflies as well as host plants where butterflies lay their eggs and caterpillars feed. Informational panels throughout the enclosure enhance the visitor experience, detailing the natural history of these insects and explaining how to attract them to your yard. Visitors learn about the four stages of the butterfly’s life cycle from eggs, caterpillars, and chrysalises, to adults. Guided tours of the butterfly enclosure are offered throughout butterfly season (May through October).
