Welcome to Association for Butterflies!

Association for Butterflies was established to support butterfly farmers and hobbyists through education, mentoring, and research. We are dedicated to educating both farmers and the public in the area of conservation by promoting butterfly habitats and gardening, and to provide resources that ensure quality raising practices for healthy butterflies.

Our membership reflects a wide variety of interests including professional butterfly breeders, hobbyists, educators, exhibitors, gardeners, and conservationists.  We have several different membership levels to meet the needs of butterfly professionals and enthusiasts.

Association for Butterflies (AFB) is committed to education and offers live courses available at various times throughout the year as well as self-paced online courses that can be taken at your convenience.
