It's always a good day at the National Butterfly Center, where you may expect to see 65-70+ species! This trip takes you down the road to a refuge property around La Lomita Mission, a historical site, and then to the Riverside Club, where Captain Johnny will show you the sights up and down the Rio Grande River, on a leisurely cruise. This trips is a favorite for birders looking to add species to the Mexico and US lists! After the cruise, return to our 100-acre preserve and get to know it better, with guides who will take you across the levee to look for butterflies on the wild side. Ever-growing gardens and native habitat expansion invite hundreds of species each year, including U.S. Records and ultra-rarities like the Red-sided Swallowtail and Dusted Spurwing, seen in 2015. The truth is you never know what you’ll see at the NBC! Slow easy walking (unless you’re on the chase) with restrooms and benches on the ‘front 30.’ Picnic under the palapa.
