The live butterfly conservatory opened in the mall’s grand court this month.  The special attraction will be at the mall through April 3.

The 300-square-foot conservatory offers staff-guided tour in on-site butterfly house; information about the anatomy of the butterfly, its life cycle and ecosystem; opportunities to see a butterfly hatch from the chrysalis; and complimentary craft projects, the mall’s website says. Visitors will also get the chance to feed a butterfly, the mall said.

Admission is $6 for adults and $5 for children. Children under the age of 2 are free with adult admission, according to the mall’s website.
