The Oxbow is hosting a special speakers’ series called “For the Love of Florida: Telling the Essential Florida Story” at the Port St. Lucie Community Center between January and May. The series is designed to help people fall in love with Florida (all over again) by learning about the people and places that have made the state what it is, its environmental history, and a call to action to champion Florida’s waterways.
The first presentation is this Wednesday, January 9th at 6:30 pm (PSL Community Center, 2195 SE Airoso Avenue), and it’s going to be from the powerhouse Cynthia Barnett who will be presenting “Blue Revolution: A Water Ethic for Florida.” As you can see from the press release pasted below, Cynthia is an award-winning author and she was chosen to launch the series, which also ties into our St. Lucie Water Champions initiative.
