Snyder Park is home to a Tropical Hardwood Hammock ecosystem, which includes many species of native plants and wildlife, such as raccoons, opossums, foxes and birds. And now, Snyder Park is also home to a flourishing butterfly garden filled with a variety of host and nectar plants, such as milkweed, dill, and pentas. Through the generosity of the National Recreation and Park Association’s Green Parks – Green Kids program, only five agencies across the country, one of which is Fort Lauderdale, received grants to increase the number of children participating in regular, outdoor environmental education programs. Studies show that our children are spending approximately seven and a half hours daily using electronic media and less time outdoors. Access to green space and parks stimulates outdoor play and the discovery of our natural environment as well as ignites imaginative play and a sense of adventure for children.
The Snyder Park Butterfly Garden and educational program was made possible through key partnerships with the National Recreation and Parks Association, Kids Ecology Corps, and Flamingo Road Nursery. These partnerships have provided the City of Fort Lauderdale with the necessary labor, materials and funds to create the picturesque butterfly garden as well as the butterfly and moth educational program.
