Wish Upon A Butterfly

Monarch butterflies will fill the skies again on Saturday, June 26th at Wish Upon a Butterfly, an annual fundraiser at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History. This symbolic event highlights the elegant monarch, the Texas state insect. This year, because of COVID-19 concerns, Wish Upon a Butterfly will be a drive-through event from 9 am -11 am.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

Visitors will drive to the Brazos Center Park Pavilion where Museum staff, dressed in butterfly attire to add to the fun, will hand out purchased butterflies to release at home!  Participants will also receive an activity/craft packet that they can enjoy with their families.


Unable to pick up your butterfly? Museum staff will also release purchased butterflies upon request. While supplies last, butterflies will also be available for purchase at the drive-through. For more information on how to be a sponsor, or to purchase a butterfly, call 979-776-2195!
