Basically, a two mile stroll in what is now rare terrain - salt water tree life - plus the coast. Good museum, more history of the area than nature center.
This is a 63-acre natural area owned by the non-profit Land & Sea Trust and one of the few natural areas left in the keys. There is a very nice, but small museum and a gift shop. Adderly House on the property is one of the oldest houses in the keys. There are walking paths through the hammock with signs... More

Leaving my family behind for a few hours, I took a trip to the conservatory for some solitude. Their easily traveled trails were a nice kick start to the day.
