In 1961, well-connected property owners incorporated the City of Islandia, a series of islands in Biscayne Bay where hotels, golf courses, and resorts were planned. As a result of collective opposition from conservationists, the area became part of Biscayne National Park instead. Join Jason Katz, publisher of "Islandia Journal," as he tells the history of this important environmental victory and the lessons we can learn from it. All ages.
