The Dahlonega Butterfly is a vision for a sustainable future. A future with clean air, fresh water and thriving vegetation. It combines a love for the environment with the science and research needed to create positive change for the community, and for generations to come. "Be Kind to Your Planet".
Our venue is located on 8 acres of rolling mountain land in the historical gold-mining region of Castleberry Bridge Rd. The Etowah River rushes under The Castleberry Bridge which sits on the border of Lumpkin County & Dawson County. Water brings wildlife and rich fauna to this area, while higher elevation ridgelines offer Blue Ridge mountain views; It's the perfect location for our solar Butterfly Conservatory & gardens. We're just 5 miles North of GA 400, & 5 miles to the West of downtown Dahlonega.
