Refuge System interpretive programs provide opportunities for visitors to make their own connections to the natural world. From self-guided walks to ranger-led programs, many national wildlife refuges help visitors learn more about the wildlife and habitat behind the landscapes.
Refuge staff and volunteers join together during Lighthouse Open House events. A few times a year, the historic Cedar Keys Light Station is opened to the public for tours. Partners University of Florida, the Florida Lighthouse Association, USS Ft Henry reenactors, and others donate their time to enrich the visitor's experience while the island is open.
Through Refuge Ranger interpretive programs, you can learn why magnificent frigate birds spend the summer on Seahorse Key, why the only "white" cottonmouths in the world love the rookery, along with thousands of other interesting and informative stories.
