The Key West Art & Historical Society is excited to partner with Hindu Charters for a series of historical lectures. This unique experience will include a morning sail with mimosas and a presentation from a prominent island historian. Each month we will host a subject matter expert that will discuss an important aspect of Keys history and the development of this thriving Island community that was once the wealthiest city in the state of Florida.
Presenter: Mark Hedden

A harbor tour and talk about what we know about the birdlife of the Florida Keys and how we know it. We’ll focus on such species Great White Herons, White-crowned Pigeons, and Antillean Nighthawks. And we’ll talk about people like John James Audubon, Earl H. Greene, Roger Tory Peterson, and Robert Porter Allen.
