Roy Hyatt Environmental Center Holds Open House

October 4, 2016

The annual open house was held Saturday at the Roy Hyatt Environmental Center in Cantonment.

Visitors had the opportunity to stroll through the center’s butterfly garden, hike trails into a bog, meet owls from the Wildlife Federation of Northwest Florida, peer through telescopes from with the Escambia Amateur Astronomy Association, meet the resident reptiles, and bid on artwork and other items in a silent auction.

The Roy Hyatt Environmental Center is at 1300 Tobias Road, Cantonment.

    You missed it. :) It was on the “Events” page for about two weeks prior and in a front page story on Saturday.
