The "Friends of the Butterflies" are donors who are committed to supporting The Water Conservation Garden’s Dorcas E. Utter Butterfly Pavilion and its related educational programs. By joining the "Friends", you will help The Garden maintain the Butterfly Pavilion to ensure it serves as an educational resource for the community in perpetuity, so that others may learn about the critical role butterflies play in San Diego’s eco-system.
In recognition of each gift, donors will receive a handcrafted, custom-engraved, unique glass butterfly. The size and placement of your butterfly will be commensurate with your donation.
