Eager to “dig” deeper into Gulf Coast archaeology, history, and ecology? If so, get your tickets now for the Manasota Beach Club (MBC) Monday Lecture Series. This year marks 33 years for this popular Lunch and Learn series hosted by the MBC owners, the Buffum family, and their commitment to area environmental and historic preservation. Presenters include archaeologists, historians, ecologists, and preservationists. The lead-off presentation on Monday, 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. The new preserve, owned and managed by non-profit Lemon Bay Conservancy (LBC), is improving water quality flowing into Lemon Bay and providing a permanently protected refuge for wildlife. Furner will lead a guided walk on Thursday, January 13, to visit the restored habitat (details to be provided at the luncheon). On Monday, January 17, the topic will be “Why Venice? Mecca for Circus Performers and Fans,” and will include an update on the new Ringling Circus Museum Railroad Car at the Historic Venice Station.” Presenter Kim Patmore Cool is the author or co-author of some 30 books relating to business, needlework, history, travel, the environment, the circus, and ghosts (she is known as the “Ghost Lady of SW Florida”). She has been the features editor for the Venice Gondolier Sun for more than 25 years. Other presenters: January 24: Meg Lowman, “Canopy Meg,” (pictured here) speaking on “Saving Trees through Mission Green”; January 31: John McCarthy on “Marie Selby Botanical Gardens Historic Spanish Point Campus – An Update & Invitation”; February 7: Steve Avdakov on the architectural record of Manasota Beach Club and owner Sydney Crampton will review its history since 1960.
