“Social Butterflies” will be a week filled with butterflies from institutions across Balboa Park. Support pollinators in the park by being part of the festivities!
"Name a butterfly" for $5 and support pollinators in Balboa Park! Friends is hosting a butterfly release in Zoro Garden in honor of designated donors. The butterfly release video will air on Friends’ social media channels and be posted on this website in late May.
"Adopt the blue butterfly" - Help Friends crowdsource adoption of the blue butterfly on the iconic Balboa Park Carousel kiddie ride! Our goal is to raise $5,000 to adopt the ride, and restore the historic Carousel to its 1910 glory. Donations of at least $50 will receive 4 tickets to ride the Carousel as well as an opportunity to submit a suggested nickname that will be on the permanent ride plaque! Every $50 increment donated receives a naming opportunity – for example, a single donation of $100 will earn the donor 2 naming opportunities.
