The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park will be presenting An Early Evening History Cruise with Wine and Cheese on Saturday, May 25, 2013. The cruise aboard pontoon boats departs from the Park’s Visitor Center boat docks promptly at 4:30 pm for an evening cruise to the main spring and Fish Bowl area. There you will learn about the area’s history while you enjoy a taste of wine, cheese, crackers and an assorted fruit bowl. Grape juice and water will also be available.

Gary Ellis, Director of GARI (Gulf Archaeological Research Institute), will speak about the early peoples of this area. Then, Park volunteer Bert Henderson will do a presentation on the area’s history since the 1800s. There will be door prizes. Pontoon boats will return you to the Visitor Center on US 19 at sundown.

Tickets for this event may be purchased at the Park’s administrative office located at the Visitor Center on US 19. Tickets are $25.00 each. Tickets are limited, so early purchase is recommended.
