Life of the Straits: Lighthouses
July 23, 2020
The unique 40 Mile Point Lighthouse is actually one of the few in the state that has a keeper, who lives in the lighthouse and museum with his family. We hear from keeper Eric Klein about the history of the lighthouse. Then we have a family challenge encouraging you to make your own lighthouse-inspired art. Finally we end with a fun Q&A with the whole Klein family where we learn what it’s like to live at a lighthouse year round.
