A butterfly reminds us that although change is a beautiful thing; it also requires hard work, perseverance, and a little luck as it goes through its transformation.

As a valued supporter of the Gardens on Spring Creek, we invite you to be part of our significant metamorphosis. New botanical gardens, a staged venue, and northern Colorado’s first and only permanent Butterfly House are awaiting to take flight.

You can help make this transformation happen!

Local artist, Ren Burke, has created a one-of-a-kind metal butterfly sculpture to activate our transformation and raise funds to complete the project.

The limited edition whimsical butterfly is $1,000 and is available now. You can choose one of three vibrant colors and personalize with a dedication, favorite word or phrase.

The butterflies will permanently adorn the expanded future Visitor’s Center with a kaleidoscope of color and beauty. The butterflies will also serve as a reminder of how we came together to support and transform The Gardens.

This is your opportunity to make a difference and be part of a special community legacy that will live on at The Gardens into perpetuity.

We invite you to solidify your commitment to The Gardens, and join us as we take flight!

Butterfly Purchase Options:

There are four options to order your butterfly. Cost is $1,000 per butterfly. A limited supply of butterflies are available through December 2017. Thank you for joining us in our transformation!
