Lebanese Adonis Blue

Butterflies and Moths of Lebanon

Come and visit Lebanon’s number one butterfly garden. Our butterfly garden is located on a hilltop in the Bekaa valley. The butterfly garden will incorporate hundreds of native plants and a design that will preserve and accommodate much of the original habitat and plant communities, along with a greenhouse and 350 m of trails. Butterflies are indicators of the health of our environment. They are also pollinators and beneficial animals. All they need is sun, nectar, water, and adequate shelter. Come walk the trails and discover Lebanon’s butterflies. Watch them bask, mud puddle, hilltop, and flutter around as emerging butterfly watchers. Look at them feeding on fruits and wildflowers and dancing in the sky. Tour the botanical pavilion and enjoy our wildflowers and organic products. Help conserve butterflies with every visit! The Butterfly Garden & Pavilion will be launched in the spring of 2019 and be made open to the public. So come and bring your kids and friends along!
