October 2021 – The Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve is the fulfillment of the vision of longtime residents Leon Levy and Shelby White, who loved the natural environment and way of life on Eleuthera. The 30-acre preserve, recognized as the island’s first national park, was jointly created by the Bahamas National Trust and the Leon Levy Foundation. It is focused on promoting education, interdisciplinary conservation, preservation, and research, for future generations of Bahamians to understand and appreciate their rich ethnobotanical heritage.
