Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo will open a new butterfly exhibit July 2 called Molbak's Butterfly Garden.

Visitors will enter a 3,000-square-foot enclosed space where they can stroll among nearly 500 free-flying butterflies representing at least 15 species native to North America.

The zoo says visitors can learn about the life cycle of butterflies and how to identify them. The exhibit also focuses on preserving and restoring habitat.

Zoo staff designed the exhibit. Curtis McGuire was the architect and Turnstone Construction was the general contractor.

Entry to the butterfly garden is free with zoo admission. It's located near the west entrance, next to Zoomazium.

The address is 5500 Phinney Ave. N.
