The Adopt-a-Butterfly program is a great graduation, birthday or Father’s Day gift and an easy way to show support for Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden.
The Adopt-a Butterfly program is available through July 28, 2013.
Butterflies at the Garden
Visit the Butterfly Pavilion at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden from May 11 through July 28, 2013, and enjoy a unique experience that allows you to wander through a changing ecosystem and interact with free-flying butterflies and the plant life that supports them. You’ll see, up close, how butterflies use their tubular mouthparts to obtain nectar and watch caterpillars feed on leaves and go through the process of transformation into adults. Read more about the Butterfly Pavilion at the Garden.
Keep the butterflies fluttering with a gift that allows you to adopt a butterfly of your very own. It’s simple—and it’s the easiest pet you’ll ever own because we’ll take good care of your butterfly for you.
Adopt a Butterfly today!
Celebrate the Golden State's insect. Adopt a California dogface (Zerene eurydice).
Promote the pipevine swallowtail butterfly (Battus philenor) habitat at the Garden.
Adopt a Royal—the monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus).
There are lots of good reasons to adopt a butterfly:
You can show that your family, organization or company supports the environment and your gift allows you to take part in butterfly conservation.
A butterfly makes a unique wedding, anniversary or birthday gift.
You can honor or memorialize a loved one.
Your support allows RSABG to advance our work with scientists and communities.
It’s so easy to make an adoption. Simply purchase the adoption package in the RSABG California Garden Gift Shop or call (909) 625-8767 ext. 221, to order an adoption package over the phone (we will ship packages to you or have them ready for you at the California Garden Gift Shop).
Can I take my butterfly home?
All the butterflies stay here at the Butterfly Pavilion, but we highly encourage adoptive families to visit often!
How long will it take for my adoption package to reach me?
When you purchase your adoption package in the Garden Gift Shop, you can take it home right away. For phone orders, please allow at least two weeks for shipping and delivery.
What if I’d just like to donate to the program but not receive the adoption package?
You can always choose to donate more than the cost of the package or make a donation and not receive the package. Any outright donation (above and beyond the actual cost of the package) is tax-deductible and goes directly toward supporting RSABG’s conservation efforts.
For more information about making donations to RSABG, contact Debbie Carini, associate director of development, at (909) 625-8767 ext. 221.
