Garden CLOSED Monday, August 22

The Garden will be closed Monday, Aug. 22 to allow a day of rest for our team. Thank you for understanding as we recognize their hard work creating a safe place of beauty for our community.

M&T Bank Butterflies LIVE!

Please Note: M&T Bank Butterflies LIVE! closes in extreme heat.
Our tropical butterflies love the heat, but for the safety of our guests, staff and volunteers, when the conditions become too hot, the exhibit closes to the public. We reopen once safe to do so. The best time to visit is early in the morning.


Learn more about Butterflies LIVE! and David Rogers’ Big Bugs as part of M&T Bank Pollinator Power.  The Garden is open until 9 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays for Wednesdays Alfresco and Flowers After 5 concerts (includes special Fidos nights).
