Florida Keys Land and Sea Trustlast updated: April 2011

The Florida Keys Land Trust was created in 1976 by a group of concerned citizens in an effort to save the hardwood hammocks of the Florida Keys. These tropical woodlands, called hammocks, contain both unique hardwood species such as Lignum Vitae and Jamaica Dogwood along with native thatch palms that grow nowhere else in the United States. In August of 1978, the Florida Keys Land Trust was incorporated as a non-profit organization (the name was changed to the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust several years later) for the purpose of preservation, conservation and the restoration of rare and endangered areas of the Florida Keys.
