The Missoula County Weed District & Extension and Missoula Butterfly House & Insectarium are partnering to build the premier center for scientific and community learning at the fairgrounds. We’re calling it INSPIRE Rocky Mountain Gardens and Exploration Center. Encompassing 4 acres, including 2.5 acres of outdoor education gardens and Montana’s first tropical butterfly house, the INSPIRE campus will draw residents and visitors and inspire them to connect to nature and our rural heritage in a way Montana has not seen before.
