The Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary is a hands-on science -based education center and lots of fun but if your child is too young to go to the movies , we are probably not the appropriate place for a visit during regular hours, please consider attending the special preschool program on Thursday mornings or visit in July or August .

  • Bring a picnic, use our tables outside and explore the native pollinators in the garden in front of the Sanctuary.
  • The sanctuary recommends their video and program for children ages 3 & 1/2 and older. You can come and take advantage of the photographers special price and conditions if you like also.
  • Special events see what is going on this month! Check their website for a calendar.

A perfect and fun little gem north of the LV. We visited today with my 3 yr old son. It is small, but packed with fun inside. Many tables with puzzles and activities for kiddos to play with at any time. There are frogs and fish to view as well. The butterfly flight room was great! Not overwhelming, and the guide was so informative and excellent with kids. Butterflies were easy to 'catch' on the sticks they provide. There is also a gift shop - which cannot be avoided FYI! We will def be back again in the spring when they re-open!...more

This place is SO much fun! Be sure to call ahead to make sure they're open, but it's a great little day trip!
