A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Mike Guarino

Kayaking is made easy with our new kayak ramp at the service dock. The park is open Thursday through Monday. Ranger-guided tours are available Friday through Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Visit the Matheson House for a look at island living in the 1930s. Bring plenty of water, bug repellent and a bug suit if you plan on attending the Ranger-guided tour.

Plan now to join the Friends of the Islamorada Area State Parks and Florida Park Service on December 6th for our annual Lignumvitae Christmas Celebration. Boats will begin leaving from Robbie’s Marina at 9:00am and the last boat to the island will be 2:00pm. A donation of $5 for the boat is suggested. There will be Ranger-guided tours of the Matheson House and Botanical Hammock, children's activities and refreshments. Lunch will also be available for a suggested donation to the Friends organization. Thanks to all who came to see us last year!

Don't forget to check out the February 2014 issue of Making Waves - the newsletter of the Friends of the Islamorada Area State Parks, Inc. Better yet, ask about becoming a member!
