Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center

Description

This nonprofit educational center is named in honor of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the writer, activist, and environmentalist whose classic River of Grass recognized the Everglades as a vast and shallow river that covered much of south Florida.

The center is on the north end of Key Biscayne’s Crandon Park and celebrates the unique and fragile environment that creates this land of tidal pools, coastal hammocks, and seagrass beds. In the words of Douglas, “Whatever the universe is, I believe it is all one. And this fragile shoreline, with its mangroves, coastal hammocks and ancient reef, is a precious part of very little that still survives of our unique environment.”
