Thanks to the initiative of the Children’s Librarian, Cailey Klasson, and the City of Gulfport’s Horticulturist, Toffer Ross, the southeast corner (facing Beach Boulevard) of the Library now exhibits a Florida wildlife habitat of native Florida plants. The habitat is referred to as the Pocket Prairie because it is a micro example of Florida prairie. The National Wildlife Federation has recognized the Pocket Prairie as a certified Wildlife Habitat.
As the prairie matures, adult and children’s programs will be featured in the Garden.
