"ROYAL PALM LODGE"

"Royal Palm Lodge,' well equipped and inviting, is situated near the entrance
of Royal Palm State Park on "Paradise Key." The Lodge affords pleasant rooms,
hot and cold water, electric lights, and table service at reasonable rates.
Special lunches, teas, etc., may be arranged through mail service. Meals are
served at all times of the day without previous notice. All visitors will receive a
cordial welcome.
Picnic Grounds are provided for out-of-door luncheon parties.

To protect Royal Palm State Park from fire by the building of a moat around
"Paradise Key," a fund of $25,000 is being raised. To commemorate your gift to
this fund, a beautiful medal is offered. Those who wish to contribute to the pres-
ervation of this wonder spot, should communicate with the Warden, or the Treasurer
of the Florida Federation of Women's Clubs. This fire protection is of the greatest
immediate importance.

Native Royal Palms over 100 feet in height.
Stately oaks bearing cascades of silver moss.
Tropical orchids, ferns and vines, rare trees and plants.
Birds, bees and butterflies of rare species.
Snails, and other animal life.
The preservation of this jungle in its natural state is undertaken by the Florida
Federation of Women's Clubs, and has the approval of scientists of note.
The Warden of Royal Palm State Park (Address: Homestead, Florida,) will give
further information.
