HARKERS ISLAND, NC Cape Lookout National Seashore announces the final opportunity to participate in the Evening at the Cape programs on Friday, October 6, and Saturday, October 7. 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 gaze at the heavens as the moon and stars come out onto unlit beaches of the National Seashore.

Reservations are required for the Evening at the Cape programs, beginning on September 25, at 10 a.m., at www.recreation.gov. Each of the two evening programs will be able to accommodate a maximum of 40 total participants.

Please be sure to arrive early ahead of the program start time to check your party in with the Ranger. All participants will travel together on a single ferry that departs shortly after the program begins. The ferry will return to Harkers Island by 9:00 P.M.
