The Big Pine Key Society celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2011 with the slogan “Thirty five years and still growing.”
Our purpose is three fold:
- To provide a forum by which individuals having a common interest in flora, both terrestrial and marine, may exchange ideas, enhance their knowledge and expand their understanding of the flora ecology of the region.
- To protect and enhance the botanical environment, working as individuals, as an organization, and in concert with community leaders and public officials.
- To expand the body of knowledge relating to flora of the area through observation, data-gathering, and research.
