The Islander Resort has dedicated a portion of the spectacular Florida Keys Conference Center for the Foundation to create the Discovery Center, offering the community a unique opportunity to create, maintain, operate and support a permanent institution that will tell the story of the Florida Keys. The geographic emphasis will be on the Upper Keys, but will encompass other areas as needed to tell the stories in a way that will preserve that history in a meaningful, entertaining and educational manner. The Discovery Center will be interesting and appealing to local residents, school groups from Monroe County and Miami Dade counties and beyond, tourists; adults, families, and scholars interested in indigenous culture of the area.
