About the Land Trust

First established in 1990 to save McKee Botanical Garden, IRLT protects the land that protects the Indian River Lagoon.

The Land Trust promotes the conservation of the Lagoon for the residents of Indian River County by preserving habitat, protecting scenic waterfront and providing access for the public.

In The News

NOTICE: Toni Robinson Trail Maintenance will take place over the next few months. The Land Trust is replacing the boardwalk and the dock. During this time, portions of the trail (but not all at once) will be closed to allow for this work.
