Discover The Island is the 15th annual fundraiser for the Egmont Key Alliance
TIERRA VERDE - Head to Egmont Key on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 10 and 11, for “Discover the Island” where you'll learn about one of Tampa Bay’s gems!

The charming 154-year-old lighthouse is still working to guide ships into Tampa Bay. Come see its majestic spiral staircase and participate in the many activities sure to enlighten all ages.

See Civil War re-enactors, stroll the island on the self-guided walk with interpretive sites along the way, including nature, wildlife, military and history. There will be children’s games, a silent auction, and much more.

Food, drinks and souvenirs will be available for purchase on the island. Shuttle ferries will be leaving Fort De Soto Park from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the last ferry returning to Fort De Soto at 4 p.m.

Day passes include the ferry. Prices are $18 for adults, $5 for youth 6-11, and Children age 5 and under are admitted free. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more adults. Individual Passes can be purchased online or at the ferry departure site on the beach between the Gulf Pier and Fort Museum.

Discover The Island is the 15th annual fundraiser for the Egmont Key Alliance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Citizen Support Organization of Egmont Key State Park, dedicated to protecting, restoring, and preserving the island. To purchase passes or get more information, go to www.EgmontKey.info.
