Donating is more than just time or money, it's peace of mind. Now you can help protect Florida's Butterflies!


 The Butterfly Estates opened in 2009, it was a four year "green friendly" renovation of our shops,  cafes  and installation of our over 3600 sq,. foot glass butterfly conservatory. Home of The Florida Native Butterfly Society 501c3.  

We are located in the Downtown Fort Myers River District. The inspiration for our venue is the Southwest Florida natural environment. Our celebration of its beauty is shared by our guests, volunteers and staff members.
