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.

The center partnered with Bricks 4 Kidz, a national organization dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), to create the studio space. Both groups plan share the studio.

Even without crowd magnets Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy playing on the weekend, The Honda Classic drew a record-breaking number of spectators this year thanks to picture-perfect weather conditions, organizers said Monday.
This year’s week-long event attracted 202,128 spectators to PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, beating the pervious record set in 2014 – the last time the tournament had perfect weather. The 2014 tournament drew 193,052 people.
The weather was a reversal from last year’s tournament, when heavy rains and winds canceled a day of play and forced a Monday finish. This year’s attendance was 36,928 higher than the weather-plagued 2015 event, which drew 165,200 spectators.
“This is a tribute to the connection that The Honda Classic has made with the community,” Honda Classic Executive Director Kenneth R. Kennerly said. “People enjoy coming out to the tournament and they have a great time once they are here. It really has become the place to be every year and people keep bringing more of their friends.”
Included in the Weston store is an ice cream counter serving 32 flavors, in addition to Hoffman’s Chocolates’ selection of more than 70 types of treats.
“We are thrilled to join the Weston community and continue expanding our legendary brand in Broward County,” Jarett Levan, president of Hoffman’s parent company BBX Capital and CEO of BBX Sweet Holdings, said in the news release.
Hoffman’s began its expansion into Broward County in late 2014 and now has four stores there.
