2023 Events

Though our islands were devastated last September by Hurricane Ian, the recovery progress on Captiva is remarkable, in large measure due to the resilience of our island community. In this same spirit of recovery, we are pleased to present an abbreviated season of educational and entertaining programs.

We hope you will join us!
