For years, the Snetsinger Butterfly Garden has been a safe and thriving habitat for more than 30 resident species of butterflies. Thanks to the work of dedicated volunteers like the Garden's namesake, Dr. Bob "Butterfly Bob" Snetsinger, as well as the Centre County Master Gardeners, the Butterfly Garden at Tudek Park has developed into a spectacular place to view beautiful butterflies and plant species in their native habitat.
