Hour 2 - Lila Stahl (Entrepreneur; President of Stahl Enterprises) on The Stahl Butterfly Palladium in Buena Park, CA
WONDER WOMAN: ENTREPENEUR LILA STAHL IS BUILDING THE WORLD'S MOST EXCITING BUTTERFLY PALLADIUM, IN BUENA PARK, CA
Combine the braininess of the legendary Oprah and the chutzpah of P.T. Barnum and the result is Lila Stahl. Today, the beautiful Lila has emerged as a prolific author, a dedicated philanthropist, and one of the savviest developers of our time. As the President of Stahl Enterprises, the Iranian-born and USA bred Lila is rocking the new entertainment and tourist world like a sonic boom. To those who are acquainted with Lila she is known as a chariot of strength for her attitude of positivity and determination at every turn of life.
Armed with facts, figures and a sharp comic wit, Lila's $55 million Stahl Butterfly Palladium is becoming one of the great wonders of the modern world; the largest enclosed rainforest exhibit that would make the world a safe place for butterflies and hummingbirds and many of God's now endangered creatures.
For Lila, bringing joy and happiness to the world is an intrinsic creed. With ecological integrity and visionary architectural achievements, Lila envisions a visit to the Stahl Butterfly Palladium will be like a journey to an enchanted Costa Rica rain forest, filled with pockets of parks and ponds, exotic tropical flowers and foliage, lush waterfalls cascading over 45-foot mountains, magically using space and air as almost tangible assets. Excitement expands when lights suddenly dim and guests experience simulated thunderstorms, replicating a real rainforest experience The New Stahl Butterfly Palladium will become a symbol and a Mecca for the greatest technological achievements of our time
Lila predicts the Stahl Butterfly Palladium will attract young and old, expert and novice, investor and consumer, developers and promoters from all over the world. This will be a place to learn and do business, to seek hope, inner peace and joy, knowledge and guidance. This top tourist attraction will be a priority destination for schoolchildren everywhere. And for weddings, there's a delicious "I do" surprise. The integration of education and entertainment creates an amazing experience that drives deep value for property owners and developers alike. The Butterfly Pavilion is the New Solartopia. It will be depicting this glorious reality, and accompanied by an ever-evolving catalog & website, will be a global attraction. The Solartopian concept is of a totally green-powered Earth. ALL energy comes from wind, solar, geothermal, ocean thermal, bio-fuels and the other great green sources that are redefining how we live on this planet. With it comes a society that is zero-waste, whose food is sustainable and organic, and whose impact on our Mother Earth have switched from destructive to benign.
The fifty-one thousand square feet palladium also includes an enclosed greenhouse atrium exhibit which measures 19,000 square feet, making this top tourist attraction the largest butterfly exhibit in the U.S., and one of the largest in the world.
When guests arrive, they will be presented with a 3D film on the life of a butterfly from caterpillar to chrysalis, experiencing in virtual reality the moment when it spreads its wings for the very first time. Inside the atrium, thousands of real butterflies emerge from metamorphosis, causing miles of smiles from the surrounding visitors.
Nowhere else in the world can one experience an enormous jellyfish aquarium, as well as a bee-utiful "Bee Cave" where visitors will be able to see a large working beehive in an acrylic enclosure allowing patrons to walk around the hive and see it from the a bee's perspective.
The Stahl Butterfly Palladium will also establish a world class laboratory, to expand research of butterflies and bees. Both butterflies and bees are dying in extraordinary numbers. Our laboratory will aid researchers to discover the cause or causes behind Colony Collapse disorder and more importantly how to reverse this malady. This endeavor is supported by our nonprofit (501.C3) Butterfly Foundation.
The Stahl Butterfly Palladium will have a digitized marketplace conducted through a common space that can triple as a theater and a classroom. Since southern California is in the early stages of a gargantuan boom in renewables, this would be a major additional attraction to the entertainment location.
Delight continues with the world class gift stop offering beautiful and authentic gifts and art inspired by the Butterfly Palladium from Costa Rica, as will as from Central and South American countries. Operated by the Wildlife Trading Company.
The city of Buena Park began a years' long search for the right project to take over this storied site in the heart of their entertainment district. The search ended in 2014 when Buena Park agreed to sell the land to Rubin and Lila Stahl and Butterfly Palladium, LLC. Buena Park is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country and is totally behind the Stahl Butterfly Palladium. The project passed the city council unanimously.
