Butterfly Ridge is a butterfly conservation center focusing on the health and well-being of butterflies native to southeastern Ohio.
The garden opened back in July 2017 and they’ve been captivating visitors with its enchanted space ever since. The garden sits on a 21-acre property that has been in the owner’s family since 1863. Christopher and Kris Kline have worked hard to create a peaceful place where butterflies, moths, and other pollinators can thrive.
Butterfly Ridge is open every day except Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Guided tours are on offer every day at 1 and 3 p.m. or if you prefer, you can walk the one-mile trail on your own.
Admission to Butterfly Ridge is $5. On the property, you’ll find the hiking trail, a prairie, a treehouse, and a Nature Center & Gift Shop. The ridge makes an excellent addition to any Hocking Hills itinerary. You’ll find Butterfly Ridge about 5 minutes from Conkle’s Hollow State Nature Preserve and less than 10 minutes from Hocking Hills State Park.
In addition to butterflies, moths, and pollinators, other wildlife is often spotted around the area, including deer, chipmunks, squirrels, a variety of birds, and more.
