Why do the Florida Keys have Civil War-era forts? Children attending Discovery Saturday, Aug. 18, from 10 to 11 a.m., will learn about the garrisons through activities hosted by Fort Zachary Taylor State Park rangers.

The Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center, operated by Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, hosts Discovery Saturday for children in kindergarten through fifth grade on the third Saturday of each month.

The Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center is located at 35 E. Quay Road.
