The Dr. Bettye Myers Butterfly Garden
Explore nature on campus
TWU's Denton campus is host to two a native-plant butterfly gardens that attract and sustain monarchs and many other butterflies, bees and birds.
The Dr. Bettye Myers Butterfly Garden is located next to the Ann Stuart Science Complex in the south part of campus, and the Carroll Abbot Wildflower Sanctuary is next to the Texas Pond in the northwest portion of campus.
The gardens create beautiful landmarks and give our students opportunities to learn by doing.
The gardens are supported financially by a generous grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (grant number: 83677401) and by funding from the university and private donations.
