HARKERS ISLAND, NC –Cape Lookout National Seashore announces the final opportunity to participate in the Evening at the Cape Lookout Lighthouse programs in 2016, which will take place on Friday, October 14, and Saturday, October 15. Bring your own flashlight and experience the island and the lighthouse as the keepers did, in the dark of night. Hear stories of the light keepers, watch the sunset and moon and stars come out onto unlit beaches of the National Seashore. According to Superintendent Patrick Kenney, "this is a great opportunity to discover a different side to your favorite beach!"
Reservations are required for the Evening at the Cape programs, beginning on October 3, at 10 a.m., at www.recreation.gov. Each of the two tour nights will be able to accommodate a maximum of 40 total participants.
