Without volunteers to staff the center, we are unable to open it and everyone loses out. You don’t need to be an “expert” on Egmont, its history, or its critters. The center includes a number of first class interpretive panels that provide the basic information that interests visitors.
Free transportation to and from Egmont Key is provided by Hubbard’s Marina Egmont Key Ferry.

Egmont Key NWR is disappearing at a rapid rate due to erosion from storm related high tides, high wind events, boat wakes, and sea level rise. If no steps are taken to prevent erosion, this important island will disappear into Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico forever. Help us Save Egmont Key!
