Welcome Back

The Deering Estate and Deering Estate Foundation would like to extend a hearty “Welcome Back” to our members and guests as we all adhere to social distancing and other safety recommendations.   There is no better feeling than to get outside to enjoy nature and visit the Deering Estate.  Walk along the nature trails, enjoy a picnic in the Royal Palm Grove, sit and breathe in the salty air while watching the manatees and other marine life frolic in the boat basin, venture out to the Chinese Bridge or watch the sunrise at the People’s Dock.  The Deering Estate is truly a very special natural jewel in our community.

We are grateful to our members, supporters, and communities at large—it is because of you that the Deering Estate continues to be not just a local jewel but a national treasure.  We hope you will consider participating in the Deering Estate Foundation’s Welcome Back campaign to raise operating funds for our continued success.
