Spotlight on Navesink Lighthouse at Tuckerton Seaport’s Oct. 9 Lunch n’ Learn Program

Oct 02, 2019

Each second Wednesday of every month, from September to May, the Tuckerton Seaport, in partnership with the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve, offers the popular Lunch n’ Learn Series. On Oct. 9, at 12:30 p.m., historian Nicholas Wood will visit the Seaport for a talk on the “Famous Firsts of the Navesink Twin Lights,” a non-operational lighthouse and museum in Monmouth County.

The lighthouse, with its pair of beacons, overlooks Sandy Hook Bay, which is the entrance to New York Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. And, as it turns out, the “Twin Lights” are not actually twins.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Lighthouse Challenge – held just one week later, on Oct. 19 and 20 – Wood will lead a discussion of this historic site.

Cost is $2 per person, payable at the door. Participants can bring a lunch or call the Union Market at 609-879-5799 to order food.
