Smythe Park has been abundant with wildlife. It is on the migratory path which numerous birds use as a stopping ground along their journey. Since the floods the following animals have been missing or drastically reduced: Wood Ducks, beavers, opossums (North America’s only marsupial), snakes, lizards and greatly reduced population of frogs, raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, fish, and turtles. If you know of any other animals or have pictures that you would like to add to this site please contact us with the information. We do know that some animals were washed away with the floods and many have also died crossing Scarlett Road.
