CITATION
For Outstanding Contributions to Forestry
Presented By

THE FLORIDA FORESTRY ASSOCIATION
At its Annual Meeting in Gainesville, Florida
December 10, 1954

lMrsr. Willi(am Sherma'n -9en nnlings

(May Austin Mann)
Mother of Forestry in Florida. Her husband, William S. Jennings, served as
Governor of Florida from 1901 to 1905. In Governor Jennings' message to the
1908 Legislature, he stressed great need for forest conservation. From that
time on Mrs. Jennings worked constantly for a law to control the vast waste of
Florida's greatest natural resource. In 1927-twenty-four years after Gover-
nor Jennings' message and seven years after his death-Mrs. Jennings led in
securing passage, after a hard fight, of the Law creating the present Florida
Board of Forestry. The bill itself was drawn by Mrs. Jennings' son, S. Bryan,
and sponsored by the Florida ForestryAssociation. Her son, Bryan, was ap-
pointed by the Governor on the newly created Board and served ten years,
seven as President of the Board, during which period he was responsible for
the appointment of the first State Forester.
Mrs. Jennings' specialty was legislation. When Stetson University, at
DeLand, awarded her an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree in 1931, the Uni-
versity President commented jovially that he knew of no one who deserved
the honor more, since Mrs. Jennings had "doctored more laws than any per-
son he knew." Mrs. Jennings has been actively and energetically connected
with many other worthwhile movements in conservation, beautification, and
good citizenship.

ROYAL PALM STATE PARK
EMERGENCY APPROPRIATION OF $20,000.00 BADLY NEEDED


The Florida Federation of Women's Clubs respectfully appeals to the members of the Florida
Legislature to make an Emergency Appropriation of $20,000.00, covering two years, for the restoration,
protection, future care and the re-establishing of the nursery for Royal Palm State Park.

GRANTS AND GIFTS
Royal Palm State Park, 12 miles below Homestead, has 4,000 acres of land, 960 acres granted to
the Florida Federation of Women's Clubs by the 1915 Legislature, and a like acreage, 960, given the
same year by Mrs. Henry M. Flagler. In 1921 the Legislature again made a grant of 2,080 acres. The
State Park is said by scientists to be unique as the only Tropical Jungle of its kind in the United States
and possibly in North America. The tree and plant life belong botanically to the West Indies in char-
acter, which was shown by the more than 251 kinds of plant life listed and catalogued by Dr. W. E.
Safford, Economic Botanist, detailed from the United States Plant Bureau in 1916. This survey was
published in the Smithsonian Journal and given wide publicity. The same year the U. S. Biological
Survey conducted a two-week survey by Arthur Howell, who listed 123 kinds of birds.
The Curator of Bronx Park (N. Y.) Botanical Gardens, Dr. John K. Small, has written several
journals and books on the Park which have been widely quoted. The Park has proven a mecca of interest
to scientific students.
INCOME
Previous to 1921 the Federation cared for the Park by general subscriptions in which the Dade
County Commissioners generously assisted. The work had grown so that it became impossible to provide
the actual maintenance and protection of the Park with such an indefinite source and manner of
financing, and the Legislature made a continuing annual appropriation of $2,500 per annum. This has
been supplemented to total an amount expended of from $8,000 to $10,000 per annum.
The source of income has been from the Lodge, built in 1916-17, where a limited number of visitors
can be housed and served meals, and from the raising of Royal and other palms for sale. Last year ten
acres of the prairie land was fenced as a nursery and cocoanuts planted with the hope of increasing the
revenue.
LODGE
The Park Lodge is attractive and comfortable and equipped with running water, electric lights and
- --a-refrigeration plant, the latter recently given to replace refrigerator damaged by storm. The Federa-
tion built the Lodge and other buildings on borrowed money, some of which is still owed.
STORM DAMAGE
The great storm in the fall of 1926 unroofed part of the Lodge and damaged other out-buildings;
the water destroyed the nursery, and falling trees and limbs wrecked the slat house and young palms,
cutting off the extra revenue. A new water plant had to be purchased.
The growth of the choice jungle was badly damaged and several of the largest royal palms, over
100 feet tall, were twisted off at the roots. Seventy Royal palms, some over 50 feet tall, were pulled
back in place and 60 reported growing.
FIRE HAZARD
Last week fire visited the Park and burned over about one-third of the north end of the choicest
growth. The fire departments of Miami, Coral Gables and Homestead went to the relief of the Federa-
tion Committee in an effort to save this choicest bit of plant life, which the Federation has saved and
carefully guarded for years. One hundred extra men were also secured besides the State fire depart-
ment, under direction of Mr. Dutch, Chief Fire Warden, who took charge. While the fire has been ex-
tinguished, extra men patrol the Park at the present time.
The hazard from fire, due to the storm from fallen trees and limbs, was greatly increased, and
seven wells were driven and these wells with a portable Evinrude fire engine, made it possible to save
the Lodge and out-buildings and stop the spread of the fire in the jungle last week.
More wells are needed, more fire-fighting equipment, another Evinrude engine, and roads will have
to be built through the jungle and paths cleaned, and in much of the burned-over district trees and palms
will have to be especially cared for to save them, and much replanting must be done.
The Federation, in an effort to repair the damage done by the storm, not only spent all the money
on hand, but has borrowed, and on account of this new emergency finds it impossible to cope with the
situation without making an appeal to the Legislature to appropriate an Emergency Fund of $20,000.00
covering a period of the next two years to permit a complete rehabilitation of the Park.
There are no salaries paid any member of the 16,000 members of the Florida Federation of Women's
Clubs. The only salaries are paid to the Warden of Royal Palm State Park, his helper, and the Lodge
hostess. From time to time extra help is hired by the day as needed. It is impossible to abandon such
an attractive and valuable piece of remarkable growth and the buildings and equipment upon which
the Federation has expended attention, energy and funds.
Thirty thousand visitors registered at the Lodge last year, and it is estimated that not more than
half register. The park is one of Florida's rare attractions, and while of the greatest scientific value,
it is also a great advertising asset.
A group of the greatest scientists of the United States value it so highly that they are serving in
an advisory capacity to the Park Committee.

SUMMARY OF ROYAL PALM STATE PARK VALUES-
There are 4000 acres in the Royal Palm State Park-
e60 approximately is included in Paradise Key where
the lush growth of the jungle is althe there are many
smaller keys on the trast-this area is priclese and no
value can be set an it on account of its selentifil worth-
There is perhaps 1000 aeres vhich is above high water most
of the year that can be rented by the season at $5.00 per
acre and that would beQ5% on $100 per aere value oi--- $1W00,000
wash similar has sold for muah more per acre.

Uhe raining acre ,le Is und:r waLer most of the year and
the value could not bo established except as a wild life
refruge unless drained.
The Federal Goverrment th.ru the work docne by the C.C0,C
Camp under the National Park Service expanded for material..- 20,000
The work done in the Park of reeking the pathasbuilding the
reek earages,and housing tho power plants for wter and electricity
was set at ------------- ----... ---------- 8p0000
The above Incltdes -a.elters,deer fead house and lily pool
and fire tzwer.T-c iibpct alco included replanting the 60
acre burned over area on the Paradise Key,

I have had a grert desl af experience In buildingg and planting
and I would estliate thit at present prices an& of material
and laboe it would eest to replace the Ledgesnd furniashIngs,
the light plant,an! the electric plPntthe rook giragesopower
houses ,feed house fire toeer and alat house about --------- 25.000.
would be oeneervattve,

The plant life of the area and tl-.e wild life found there are
of mudh a 6roat tnlue froi a ackentiiic stand point that it
is Impossible to fix a monetary value of this great senmeratien

RESOLUTION

CREATION OF THE EVERGLADES .NATIONAL PARK



WHEREAS, about twelve years has elapsed since the Florida
legislature enacted the first law looking toward the creation of the
Everglades National Park, and

WHEREAS, the State has maintained an official headquarters
over such period at an expense of approximately $100,000 without hav-
ing acquired any acreage toward the establishment of said National Park,
and

WHEREAS, the adjustment of the Everglades Drainage Bonds,
through the efforts of Governor Spessard Holland, with the full coopera-
tion of the other Honorable Members of the Trustees of the Internal
Improvement Fund Board, removes the main obstacle to the transfer of
state owned lands by the Trustees to the Department of the Interior, ,

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the State Chamber of
Commerce, having led in advocating and promoting the creation of the
Everglades National Park, present a request to Governor Spossard
Holland, as chairman, and the Honorable Members of the Trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund Board, to transfer, as speedily as possible,
the state owned lands in the desired area, approximating between six
and seven hundred thousand acres, to the U. S. Department of Interior,
to be developed by the National Park Service as the Everglades National
Park so that the work may proceed without further delay.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that copies of this resolution be
'sent each member of the Trustees, but that the original be presented
by the officials of the State Chamber of-Commerce to the Trustees of
the Internal Improvement Fund Board for consideration and action and
that copies be furnished the press.
