Welcome to Flutterings at Fairchild

Did you know that Fairchild has butterfly pupae shipped from around the world nearly every day? The Wings of the Tropics exhibit is home to nearly 3,000 exotic butterflies native to Central and South America, and Asia, all of which are sent to Fairchild Garden to create this truly unforgettable paradise!

For the next week Fairchild’s exhibit Manager Martin Feather will travel to northern Costa Rica and visit one of Fairchild’s most important suppliers, El Bosque Nuevo. Join Martin on this journey and follow his posts as he surveys beetles and moths by night and searches for plants and their seeds by day in the Guanacaste region of this beautiful country.
