Mystic Meadows - The Conservatory
Mystic Meadows Conservatory is the first project of Butterfly Conservatory of Goa, The conservatory is situated in Ponda, the Spice and temple town. It is around 4 kms from Sahakari spice farm, 3 kms from Tropical Spice Plantation and 6 kms from Savoi Plantation. Spread over 4000 square metres, the park is recreated to be like a walk through a typical tropical forest, replete with streams and endemic plants. For a place which was once barren and without any natural source of water, come and marvel at the efforts of some ordinary citizens who have conjured up this safe haven for butterflies. More than 133 species of butterflies have been photo documented at this place over the year. It is possible to spot around 25 species on any given day.

The couple who started it all. The park is the brainchild of Dr Jyoti Heblekar. A practicing Homeopath, she finds time to manage two children, three dogs, a few cats ( too nomadic to keep count ) and a few hundred of butterflies. Yashodan, her husband, adds to those logistics.
The design and layout ( or lack of it ) is credited to Yashodan, while keeping the place up and running is Jyoti’s headache .
Tanmaye and Shrusti, their children, are the Resident experts!
