With support from the Florida Division of Historical Resources, the Cedar Key Light Station on Seahorse Key has a new replica lens. On Friday, July 5, from 7 to 9:30 pm, all are invited to Cedar Key for the official lens-lighting celebration. The lighting ceremony itself will be at 9:00. Details are in the Nature Coast Biological Station May newsletter and soon on the NCBS website.
The following day, Saturday, July 6 from 9 am to 3 pm, there will be an Open House on Seahorse Key. Come out, enjoy time on the island which is part of the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge. Visit the marine lab and the Light Station which are managed on the island by the UF/IFAS Nature Coast Biological Station. This will be one of only about four Seahorse Key Open Houses during the year.
