Westminster Butterfly Pavilion
The Butterfly Pavilion is nestled in the town of Westminster, Colorado and is home to hundreds of species of invertebrates like butterflies and other insects. The pavillion is the first stand-alone, Association of Zoos and Aquariums-accredited non-profit invertebrate zoo in the world and a leader in invertebrate knowledge, inspiration and connection. They offer all sorts of hands-on experiences as well as educational classes for both children and adults. The Rocky Mountain Butterfly Consortium, who founded the space, is also a champion of the PACE program. Pollinator Awareness through Conservation and Education (PACE) is a global initiative led by the Butterfly Pavilion to increase awareness of the importance of pollinators and promote habitat and species conservation. PACE programs include habitat restoration projects, education programs for adults and children, citizen science opportunities, and more.
