Manasota Beach Club to host Speakers' Series

For over sixty years, the Buffum family (including 92-year-old Sydney Buffum (right) and her daughter, current manager Sydney “Buffy” Crampton (left) has operated the resort on Manasota Key known as the Manasota Beach Club. Throughout these years, they have also played an important role in area public service by serving on numerous boards, being dedicated to area environmental and historic preservation, and sponsoring hundreds of events. This year, Buffy says, “I wanted to add to the discussion by highlighting a number of key area ecological, and local MBC historical, issues, and this year our co-organizer Larry Kruckman and I have gathered an exceptional group of speakers.” Eager to “dig” deeper into Gulf Coast archaeology, history and ecology? If so, here is the speaker’s series for you! Presenters include archaeologists, historians, ecologists, and preservationists when Manasota Beach Club (MBC), a popular 20-acre resort on Manasota Key, hosts its annual Monday Lecture Series, now in its 33rd year. Beginning January 10, the “lunch and learn” series is presenting experts on recent underwater archaeology “digs,” native vs. exotic “key” vegetation, early 20th century conservationist writer John Burroughs, the endangered scrub-jay, a nature walk and talk, and more. The lead-off presentation on January 10 will be “Habitat Restoration at Lemon Creek Wildflower Preserve” by Eva Furner who will discuss the $2.1 million restoration of the old Wildflower golf course in Grove City, including restoration benefits, the ongoing challenges posed by invasive plants, and future plans. MBC, 7660 Manasota Key Road, will host the luncheon and lecture series on Mondays from noon until 1:30pm. The cost is $25, plus taxes/gratuity, and reservations are required due to limited seating. All presentations are outside with social distancing and mask required, except while eating at your table. For additional information and reservations, contact Manasota Beach Club at 474•2614 or www.manasotabeachclub.com.
