The Kate Gorrie Butterfly House originally opened in 2000 to honor the memory of Kate Gorrie, daughter of Meg and Tom Gorrie of Pennington, NJ. The Gorries are long-time board members and benefactors of the Watershed Association, and chose to honor Kate’s life and her love for the beauty of nature by helping build a butterfly house.
The outdoor structure is open seasonally (mid-June to early October), free to the public from dawn to dusk. You are welcome to visit the butterfly house any day of the week.
