Explore the public and private properties around the National Butterfly Center, where butterfly gardens large and small yield exciting and often unexpected species! Start your day at the Bentsen-RGV State Park with an easy walk around the Visitor’s Center, then embark on a 1.5 mile walk around Bentsen Palm RV Resort and the renowned wall surrounding Retama Village, as well as private gardens within the wall. In 2013, the 2nd & 3rd US Record Sightings for the Zebra Cross-streak occurred in this special corridor. See for yourself why this area of increasingly rich habitat is called 'The Butterfly Beltway.' Additional gardens may be announced, based upon sightings. Easy walking with restrooms available.
