The TorreyaKeepers is an ongoing effort spearheaded by members of the Magnolia chapter of FNPS and parters with the goal of working to engage partners and concerned citizens in our project to conserve the Florida Torreya in its native habitat.

"TorreyaKeepers is a project of the Florida Native Plant Society and was started by local landowners and concerned citizens working to save the Florida Torreya (Torreya taxifolia), which has become one of the rarest and most imperiled trees in the world. We work closely with recovery plan partner organizations such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Atlanta Botanical Garden, University of Florida, Torreya State Park and others. Our primary focus is on working with private landowners to document trees, assist Atlanta Botanical Garden in preserving genetic lines, and assist landowners with management."
