Position Reports To: Vice President of Philanthropy Direct Reports: Donor Relations Coordinator About Butterfly Pavilion: Here at Butterfly Pavilion, we transform the way people think about invertebrates. These small but mighty animals that surround us are so much more than people think. They are everywhere, because everything depends on them. They are the hidden heroes of the animal kingdom. As the leader in invertebrate knowledge, inspiration and connection, Butterfly Pavilion works to foster an appreciation of these critical animals by educating the public about the need to protect and care for threatened habitats globally, while conducting research for solutions in invertebrate conservation. Whether it is providing unique, hands-on learning experiences in our exhibits and educational programs, conducting new research that sets the standard for zoos across the country or building innovative solutions for species and habitat conservation in countries around the world, Butterfly Pavilion is leading the way in ensuring invertebrates are protected for the future. Founded in July 1995, Butterfly Pavilion believes that an appreciation of the environment begins with an appreciation of all living things. Every day we teach the young and old alike about the need for conservation, because with knowledge and empowerment we will protect the world's natural habitats for generations to come. Our mission is to foster an appreciation of invertebrates by educating the public about the need to protect and care for threatened habitats globally, while conducting research for solutions in invertebrate conservation.

Butterfly Pavilion is a Tier II member of the SCFD (Science and Cultural Facilities District) and is the eighth largest cultural facility in the Denver Metro area, attracting more than 4.5 million visitors in 23 years of operation. Butterfly Pavilion was the first stand-alone invertebrate zoo in the United States to become a certified member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and has become a prototype for many others. Our facility includes four indoor exhibit areas; eleven acres of public gardens; two educational classrooms; and event space, including a 2,200 square foot ballroom and patio overlooking Jefferson County Open Space.

Looking forward, we are committed to providing the most enriching experience for our audience, being recognized as a scientific authority, and being a leading educational resource on invertebrates. To this end, Butterfly Pavilion has begun the early stages of launching a $33 million Capital Campaign to expand Butterfly Pavilion into the Center for Invertebrate Research and Conservation (CIRC), a brand new, 81K sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility, that will serve as the preeminent local, national and global hub for invertebrate knowledge, conservation, inspiration and connection. Located in the Baseline neighborhood of Broomfield and in partnership with City and County of Broomfield and McWhinney, the site will also feature a 1200 acre pollinator district, ushering in a new, innovative model for real estate development and landscapes. At Baseline we'll also partner with Adams 12 School District.
