Sioux Falls The Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove is a great place to go during the cold winter months. The butterfly house is kept at 80-85 degrees year round making it the perfect mini tropical vacation right here in Sioux Falls.
The Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove offers fun and events for the whole family. Over the weekends you can find yoga and tai chi in the butterfly gardens. This Saturday is also their Sea & Sky event. Where there will be crafts and fun and lots to learn.
The Butterfly House and Marine Cove have added some new features this month as well. They have a newly renovated reading room with hundreds of books to choose from. You can also visit their favorite critters in the Reading Room - Knight the Plated Lizard, Charlotte the Tarantula, and Luca & Lila the Leopard Geckos! And the best part... A beautiful view of the Butterfly Room! They also have their new jelly fish display where you can see the stages of jelly fish and watch them grow.
Along with the new features they still have their butterfly house to explore and touch pools to interact with sharks, stingrays, starfish and more.
