Tom Allen Memorial Butterfly House

The Tom Allen Butterfly House at Rotary Park is one of the premier attractions in Cape Coral. The Butterfly House is home to many native Florida butterfly species, including the Florida State Butterfly, the Zebra Longwing.

We are conducting free  tours of the Butterfly  House and Garden every Friday, and Saturday at 10:30 - 12:00. Masks are required. Please call (239) 549-4606 for additional information. The tour guides explain the different butterflies and their caterpillars and host plants. Donations are gratefully accepted and are used to purchase more plants for the hungry caterpillars.
