Life is different in the Florida Keys. This archipelago was formed by an ancient coral reef perched between the aquamarine waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Florida Bay. Residents and visitors lead a mostly laid back lifestyle consisting of fishing, diving, beach-combing and relaxing under palm trees with cocktails watching the sun rise and fall. Well, that’s the good life. I’m sure there are many people who work for a living and live the good life after hours. In an effort to understand and appreciate life in The Keys, and its relationship with the ocean, we offer here an introduction to educational opportunities provided by the Key Largo Murray Nelson Cultural Center.
The Cultural Center uses live theatrical productions, seminars, exhibits, art and photography shows, and creative camps for kids, to provide unique programs. The Ocean Life Series Events has four offerings over the next few months that are provided free to the public with a goal of educating, entertaining and inspiring audiences of all ages. Each program brings renowned researchers and academics to the Keys for lectures and inter-active meet and greets. Learn how you can support this eco-system that supports the Key West lifestyle we all love.
