Transforming urban green spaces into beautiful, butterfly-friendly habitats!

UBI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, community service organization that works with public and private partners who seek to increase biodiversity, beauty, and scientific awareness in their communities.

UBI has many unique, exciting, continuously evolving Butterfly Hotspot projects in Illinois, with more always in the works!

From family-friendly events to exploring on your own to volunteering at Butterfly Hotspots, getting involved with UBI offers immeasurable rewards!

100% of your tax-deductible donation will go to furthering our mission to continue transforming urban areas into beautiful butterfly habitat to improve the environment and enhance lives, and using those habitats to educate community members and promote science.
