As the nonprofit partner to Butterfly Wonderland, the Butterfly Wonderland Foundation seeks to educate, engage, enrich, and inspire all ages to conserve and protect our planet.

Serving as the mainspring of our education and community outreach programs, these three core initiatives guide us in all we do.

The core initiatives of the Butterfly Foundation are:

EDUCATION
Provide access to underserved students through field trips with meaningful nature experiences that enhance their academic and imaginative potential through hands-on, experiential learning.

Our Core Program provides scholarship opportunities for low-income, underserved communities, including Arizona’s Title 1 school classrooms, to experience a unique, immersive day of education at Butterfly Wonderland.

CONSERVATION
Committed to supporting a variety of programs at the local, regional, and global level to educate and inspire others about aquatic rainforest life and conservation initiatives.

CARE
Foster a community of care through volunteer engagement and internship opportunities that extend our reach to educate, serve and collaborate.

Butterfly Wonderland Foundation believes that development of today’s student charts a course for tomorrow’s business and community leaders. Our internship program provides students with a unique learning experience and real-world opportunities. Click here for more information and how to apply for an Internship.
