Huge thanks to everyone at the Biscayne Nature Center and their supporters who made this video possible!
The Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center is dedicated to environmental education and the encouragement of better citizen participation in the protection of our natural environment.
The not-for-profit organization was started by Marjory Stoneman Douglas in 1985 when she was 95 years old. The programs started in 1969 as a summer camp program and in 1971 began as a year round school field trip program for 6th grade students by a group of Miami-Dade Public School teachers.
In 1985 Marjory was called upon to save the program from budget cuts and decided that children are the future stewards of our natural world and we should educate them about their natural environment. Key Biscayne was the perfect spot for that because we have all the Florida eco-systems right in one spot. The seagrass, the coastal
hardwood hammock, mangroves, dunes, and the fossilized mangrove reef.
She felt the community needed a "Nature Center by the Sea". As people explore nature, they will learn to preserve and protect what they love.
