The Snyder Park Project is a program of Kids Ecology Corps in partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale providing service learning opportunities for kids and adult volunteers from all over Broward County.
Snyder Park is an urban forest and part of the Eastern United States Flyway zone visited by a variety of migratory birds. These migratory birds depend on the native plant and tree species in Snyder Park for shelter and food. Over the years, the numbers of Florida Natives have decreased significantly because the introduction of invasive exotic trees and plants. The goal of the Snyder Park Project is to educate kids and adult volunteers by participating in a service learning project that connects them with a real-world restoration project.
Your service to the park will be combined with an educational learning opportunity and nature walk.
