Already heading to Dahlonega, Georgia for the lavender festival later this month? Well, here's another reason to plan your trip: The delightful Northern Georgia town is now home to the Dahlonega Butterfly Farm.

Opened on June 1st, the butterfly sanctuary allows visitors both to witness hundreds of diverse species of butterflies flutter around a tropical conservatory and also to learn more about mother nature.

Atlanta's Fox 5 recently took a trip to the butterfly farm to tour the premises and speak with owner Jo Ann Goldenburg. "I think we had over 500 people [opening day] which we were not anticipating," Goldenburg said. "The farm is a sustainable, small working farm where we hope to educate about the life cycle of butterflies and the preservation of pollinators, and also to teach how important pollinators are in our world," she explained. Watch the full video below.
