Biscayne Bay Reserve
By: Lilly H.
Biscayne Bay Reserve
Biscayne Bay Reserve is located in Miami, Florida in the southern part. Biscayne Bay Reserve has six islands. They are Soldier Key, Ragged Keys, Sands Key, Elliot Key, Totten Key, and Old Rhodes Key. A key means a low-lying island or reef.
History of Biscayne Bay Reserve
Biscayne Bay Reserve was established on June 28, 1980. Ninety-five percent of the bay is water, and the shore of the bay is the location of a huge mangrove forest. Five thousand years ago, when sea level was about 20 feet lower than today, there was no Biscayne Bay. Biscayne Bay formed as sea level rose to fill a depression in the limestone between 5,000 and 2,400 years ago.
Sands Key
Soldier Key gets its name from when it was used as a camp for men. This island is mostly not used and untouched. The key is mostly covered with shrubs, grass, and mangroves.
Ragged Keys
Ragged Keys are located just north of the upper Florida Keys, also located just north of Sand Key. Some earlier names for Ragged Keys are "Knox Island", "Laurence Island", "Los Paradisos", "Mascaras", and four more.
Sands Key
Sands Key is located north of the upper Florida Keys. It is in between Elliot Key and Boca Chita Key.
Elliott Key
Elliott Key is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Biscayne Bay on the west, Sands Keys to the north and Old Rhodes Key to the south. Elliott Key is about seven miles long.
