Welcome To Our Website!
We like to think of it as a “one-stop shop” for information about the Island lifestyle. Here you will find everything from Island history to the latest news. P.I.E. Environmental has a special zeal for educational programs about our beautiful, natural environment. And you don’t have to be a new owner to enjoy the tips provided for “small footprint” living. Use “Contact Us” if you have any questions or suggestions
The Palm Island Estates Association
Palm Island Estates Association, Inc. is a non-profit association of homeowners on Knight Island, Palm Island, Don Pedro Island and Thornton Key. It was originally incorporated in 1980 “for the preservation of the natural environment and ecology of Knight and Don Pedro Islands.”
Today, it’s mission is to promote cooperation among all property owners, to offer a representative voice in civic and community affairs and to provide assistance and improvement to the islands.
Pay it Forward!
Your membership is not mandatory, but take a moment to think about what we do and what we have done for the Island:
FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT: The “P.I.E. Environmental” committee looks after our beautiful environment, with programs that include the Wildlife and Habitat Preservation Program (WHPP) and the Gopher Tortoise Conservation Team. P.I.E. supports the Don Pedro/Knight Island Sea Turtle Patrol, the volunteers who help protect the endangered species that nests on our shores each year. P.I.E. also makes sure our private beach easements and our Island Demonstration Gardens are kept clean and clear by coordinating the Annual Beach Access Clean-up and Cookout.
FOR ISLAND FUN: Our “P.I.E. Social” committee makes the events that you enjoy happen: the New Year’s Day Golf Cart Parade, the Street Dance, the Easter Pancake Breakfast, and our biggest event of the year, Art in the Palms.
FOR OUR COMMUNITY: We keep you up to date with “THE ISLAND NEWS”, posting informative articles about issues that affect our Island. P.I.E. created an Island Action Fund (formerly the “P.I.E. Legal Fund”) to address the state and county on issues that impact our properties and lifestyle. We administrate the Island Kids Scholarship Fund, offering scholarships to qualifying Island kids. P.I.E. also donates annually to important local charities such as Helping Hands, Kids Needs, the Suncoast Humane Society and Venice Wildlife.
Members enjoy the convenience of email reminders for upcoming events and Island News updates. And you can download memorable moments from our online photo gallery.
