Westport Life Saving Station open this weekend

Posted

WESTPORT — The historic Horseneck Point Life-Saving Station will be open to the public on Columbus Day Weekend (Oct. 10-12).

The Life-Saving station, which is now located near the causeway to Gooseberry Island, will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday through Monday for adults and families interested in learning about the Bay’s treacherous entrance, and the history of oil spills and accidents that have driven recent successes in environmental protection.   

On Monday, Oct. 12, the center will host a special Photographic Scavenger Hunt, that takes a playful approach to learning about and practicing the art of nature photography. This activity, which will be led by photographer Greg Stone, is free. Space is limited and registration is required.For more information about the Photographic Scavenger Hunt or to register, visit savebuzzardsbay.org/events.
