Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum Spring 2017
Wild & Scenic Film Festival
Apr 8, 2017 6:00 PM- 9:30 PM, Gates open at 6:00 PM $10 Admission
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest environmental film festival of its kind in North America being hosted in our own backyard. This series of international short films are a call to action!
Soul-stirring stories and grand sweeping vistas give us a sense of place and what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth. They illustrate not only the challenges facing our planet but the work communities are doing to protect the environment and the places we love. They also portray the magnetic draw of nature and the adventurous side of the human spirit.
Through a grant from National Sponsor, Patagonia, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is proud to join over 150 communities around the globe, to increase a groundswell of environmental awareness and support through this festival. We invite you and your family to join us for our third annual festival featuring stunningly beautiful short films that make a big splash!
We will once again be joined by local community organizations who will share with you how you can get involved in loving and caring for our earth. Palm Beach and Martin County High School students are extended a special invitation this year to get involved in our “Young Stewards of the Outdoors Video Contest.”

Keepers of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse
Friday Mar 10, 2PM
Free to all
From 1860 to 1939, more than 70 different civilian keepers served at Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. The light was then actively manned by the Coast Guard from 1939 to 1987, with approximately 100 different military keepers serving here. Some keepers were here for only a few weeks; one was here for 40 years. Who were these men that kept the light shining for so long, and what were their lives beyond our lighthouse? Learn about some of the more interesting characters and their families – local pioneers, career lighthouse keepers, veterans, sailors, and more – that have been lighthouse keepers in Jupiter.
