More about Arch Creek:
In 1992, Arch Creek Trust and the Trust for Public Lands worked to acquire an additional 1.5 acres (6,100 m2) at the northern end of the park, bringing the total size of the park to 9.4 acres (38,000 m2). Funding was provided by the Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program. In 1994 the park received a grant to add a Butterfly Garden, on this new site, using native butterfly-attracting plants.
There is a year 'round program of activities at the park, ranging from lectures by environmentalists, historians and archaeologists to monthly films featuring environmental subjects. Guided trail walks are held every Saturday at 9:30am and many Dade County school children visit on a regular basis.
