Visitor Center Projects are Underway
The Visitor Center and Aquarium may currently be closed, but there is a lot of work happening on the inside!
Did you know our aquarium team changes over 6,000 gallons of water in the tanks per week? All of the animals in our care are getting plenty of love and attention, as well as some new upgrades. In addition to the minimum care the aquariums require, volunteers and staff have worked hard to improve the electric and plumbing behind the scenes. These critical upgrades keep our staff and animals safe!
Animal care isn’t the only thing happening right now. Working with our local partners, our park team is in the process of planning, creating, and installing for new educational exhibits. Exhibit work is currently being completed with assistance from the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, the Florida State Parks Foundation, and the Florida State Parks’ Central and District 5 offices.
Construction will be happening while the Visitor Center and Aquarium is closed and we are looking forward to the building's reopening when it is safe to do so!
