Learn about the diverse ecosystem of the park on a ranger-led guided hike, which are offered each Saturday at 10 a.m. Enjoy live music and island flavors at SeaWitch Café & Tiki Bar, who’s bringing back their outdoor concert series beginning Jan. 28. Lean into our colorful island life with a self-guided mural tour or go green March 11 during the annual St. Patrick’s Lo Tike 5k and 10k!
