Wrap-up of Florida Keys trip Oct. 23-26, 2011

Our SEJ post-conference tour of the Florida Keys wrapped up Wednesday. We visited the Butterfly Pavillion and the Eco-Dicovery Center in Key West, went snorkeling at Looe Key, released a rehabilitated loggerhead sea turtle and toured and frolicked at Bahia Honda State Park.

Thanks everyone.

    The Florida Keys trip looked like a ton of fun! I really wish I would have been able to see the sun setting in Bahia Honda State Park. It looked beautiful!
