Thomas Lockyear, Manager of Museum of the Everglades, began his career as a Museum Professional at the Pirate Soul Museum in Key West. Mr. Lockyear will explore our fascination with nautical history’s most notorious ne’er-do-wells and discuss their exploits (or lack thereof) in our coastal waters. Did Jack Rackam roam Cape Romano? Did Gasparilla really build a castle off Boca Grande? Who was the Pirate of Panther Key? Join us for this arrr-some presentation and find out for yourself.

This is an in-person lecture. If you cannot join us in the Collier Museum at Government Center Lecture Hall, you may click the link below to sign up for the webinar.
