Peck Farm Park's Butterfly House was a full house Wednesday afternoon, filled not only with people but with hundreds of butterflies fluttering everywhere.

Fifteen species in the butterfly family are currently on display, including the Monarch, Julia, Zebra and several Swallowtail species. One hundred new pupa of dozens of species arrive each week to the house, so the display changes frequently. The Butterfly House is open through Sept. 20. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, weather permitting. There is a suggested donation of $2 per person or $5 per family.
