Located on the southeast end of Longboat Key these healthy wetlands and mangroves provide a number of essential benefits to Sarasota Bay. These habitats provide food and shelter to bay life, filter pollutants and help to protect shorelines from erosion. Over the past 50 years, development has caused a decline in the quantity and quality of Sarasota Bay’s wetlands. The public acquisition and restoration of Quick Point is a shining example of what can be done to protect and re-establish this unique and vital habitat.
