Presentation to the City Commissioners

On Monday July 20, 2015 Robin Goldman of Heathcote Botanical Gardens gave a presentation to Mayor Hudson and the City Commissioners of Fort Pierce, Florida on the upcoming Treasure Coast Garden of Lights presented by Bud and Dot Adams. Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce will be hosting this event on weekends from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. The Commissioners and Mayor Hudson gave their enthusiastic support for this event both publicly and privately. Volunteers are continuing their preparations to display the hundreds of Light Flowers in the Garden as well as other lighting effects. The Illumination will be the most innovative on the Treasure Coast and will be expanded year by year. Assisting Robin for the evening were volunteers Tom and Judy Salmon.

In collaboration with the Arts & Cultural Alliance St. Lucie County

Enjoy stepping back in time into our Pioneer House while learning a bit about our Indian River Lagoon.This is Your Lagoon invites you to cross the bridge of science and art. Over the course of the next year we will feature photography and science exploration, as it relates to the Indian River Lagoon. The focus is on the past in our current exhibit, “Where we were…” Enjoy black and white photos from our local families donated for the process from our St Lucie County Historical Society.

Enjoy stories from historians and history exhibits at the new Adams Cobb Cultural Center Hurricane Exhibit and St. Lucie County Regional History Center.

Watch for the progression of exhibits to “Where we are now…and Where we are going…” This collaboration will bring in noted scientists from FAU-Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and Smithsonian Marine Station at Ft. Pierce. Local photographers in residence follow scientists to create a visual journey. Experience stepping into the works of renowned scientists right in your own backyard!
