Spend a Beautiful Afternoon at Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary

Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary

At H&H Chevrolet, we love to highlight some of the lesser-known destinations across Pennsylvania that we believe families in our community would enjoy visiting. One such spot is the gorgeous Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary in Jim Thorpe, about two and half hours from Shippensburg.

Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary is an idyllic location to idle away an afternoon spotting colorful butterflies, exotic frogs, and wildflowers and learning all about wildlife and habitat conservation. You can sign your family up for a guided tour with one of Bear Mountain’s experienced staff members or you can wander the delightful “Flutterarium” on your own.

While you’re at Bear Mountain, you must:

Take the time to stand still — the curious butterflies will without a doubt land on you to say hello!

Get up close with real poison dart frogs — have no fear; in captivity, they are completely non-toxic.

Check out one of their daily events — there is always something exciting happening here, from Birds of Prey exhibitions to kid-friendly Treasure Hunts. See their monthly Event Calendar for details.

Take home some Milkweed to plant — this is the Monarch Butterfly’s favorite food, and it’s becoming harder and harder to come by. Help Bear Mountain’s efforts to re-grow Monarch habitats right here in Shippensburg!

Need a new vehicle to haul all that Milkweed seed? H&H Chevrolet has plenty of cars and trucks to choose from — stop by to see our selection today!
