Lignumvitae Key Botanical State Park
About Lignumvitae Key Botanical State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
Fall is here, and along with it is cooler weather, fewer mosquitoes and a plethora of migrating birds. Join a Park Ranger Friday through Sunday 10:00am or 2:00pm for a Guided Botanical Tour. Visit the historic Matheson House and take a look into the ways of island living in the early 1900s.
Join us for our Lignumvitae Christmas Celebration on December 7th from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. There will be Ranger-guided tours of the Matheson House and botanical hammock, children's activities and refreshments. Please contact Robbie’s Marina for boat reservations. Boats begin running at 9:00 a.m. and the last boat out is at 3:00 p.m. Fee entrance for the park is waived for the event; however a $5.00 per person donation to Robbie’s is suggested to cover boat operating costs.
Please bring plenty of fluids, sunscreen and insect repellent. Insect-protective clothing is recommended.
Contact Robbie’s Marina (305) 664-8070 for boat tours, kayak and boat rentals.
