Step into Butterfly World and you step into nature's kaleidoscope. Green birdwings, white morphos, striped tree nymphs, and tailed oranges flutter from blossom to blossom in three giant "free-flight" aviaries filled with their native flora. The largest of these enclosures, The Tropical Rain Forest, is sixty feet high and features a waterfall, cave, and periodic "tropical rain showers". But the beauties the attraction is named for aren't the only things "in flight". Three additional aviaries are filled with showy tropical canaries, finches, and even rainbow colored lorikeets, that guests can feed by hand. Botanical Gardens, a Swinging Suspension Bridge, and a LIVE Bug Zoo, where fans of the creepier, crawlier branch of the arthropod kingdom can meet scorpions, praying mantises, and tarantulas, round out this delightful park. To that end, the museum store also features a garden center full of butterfly-attracting plants to take home as well as free butterfly gardening information.
Opening the Acts 2 Acres Equestrian Center was an ideal decision for Michelle Alvarez, who was eager to make use of both her teaching experience and her lifelong passion for owning and showing horses. Today, her center specializes in training young riders in beginner lessons, which journey through nearby Tradewinds Park's scenic trails and focus on fundamentals such as safety, care, horsemanship, and grooming.
Youth may enjoy mornings at Pony Club or entire days at equestrian camp playing games, filling their noggins with educational material, and riding horses. Acts 2 Acres Equestrian Center is approved by the Girl Scouts of Broward County, meaning that the facility's experienced instructors are accustomed to teaching girl scouts and receiving payment in the form of thin-mint cookies.
At High Point Stables, the mission is to transform novice horseback riders into well-rounded equestrians both capable and comfortable in the saddle or out. To that end, trainers teach their students every aspect of proper horsemanship, from hunter/jumper riding technique to caring for the horse to galloping across miles of trails. If students should choose to extend their education beyond basic lessons and camps, they can begin preparing for any of the horse shows in which High Point Stables regularly participates.
