While REEF programs operate worldwide, the REEF Campus is located in Key Largo, Florida. Many of our staff, interns, volunteers, and education events occur here. After originally operating from a home office and then a small storefront, REEF moved to its current location in 2001. REEF Headquarters is a classic conch-style house, recognized as the oldest building in the upper Florida Keys still in its original location. In 2009, thanks to a generous gift, this building was renamed the James L. Lockwood REEF Headquarters. In 2017, with support from many of our members and the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, we undertook an ambitious transformation of the REEF Campus, adding a new Interpretive Center building, installing educational exhibits, and creating an outdoor oasis adjacent to the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail.
Visiting the REEF Campus? We are located at MM 98.3 in the median along the iconic Overseas Highway. Our address is 98300 Overseas Hwy. Key Largo, FL 33037.
Paving the way from the Interpretive Center to REEF Headquarters is the Pathway to Ocean Conservation. The pathway honors the many REEF members and organizations whose donations played a critical role in supporting the indoor and outdoor educational exhibits installed in 2017.
