When the Navarre Chamber of Commerce created a Nature Walk at Navarre Park, Jack and Fonda Wetherell persuaded the Chamber to add a butterfly house.
With the help of the Chamber, Santa Rosa Clean Community System, Inc., UF/IFAS Cooperative Extension, Florida Master Gardeners, garden clubs, businesses and community volunteers, the Panhandle Butterfly House became a reality. It first opened on Memorial Day, 1997.
The Mission of the Panhandle Butterfly House is to increase the public’s awareness of butterflies and their important role in the environment.
Visit the Panhandle Butterfly House soon!
