The Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center reopened on Wednesday, Sept. 27, for regular hours. Like the Key West and Key Largo offices of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, the Eco-Discovery Center closed on Sept. 5 in preparation for Hurricane Irma. The center, located on the Truman waterfront in Key West, suffered minor water damage and will resume regular hours, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday.

The Eco-Discovery Center features interactive and dynamic exhibits depicting the terrestrial habitats and the marine ecosystem of the Florida Keys. Admission is free. The center is sponsored and operated by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, NOAA, the South Florida Water Management District, Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks, the National Wildlife Refuges of the Florida Keys and Eastern National.
