The Old Becomes New

Historical and environmental attractions are nothing new to Martin County, but this week we discussed how 'old' attractions are evolving into something 'new.'

Broadcasting LIVE from beautiful Hutchinson Island’s Elliott Museum, Talkin' Tourism on Florida’s Treasure Coast turned co-host Robin Hicks-Connors (aka History Lady) into a guest as the crew focused on the future of two of Martin County’s key attractions.

Big plans are in store for a new Elliott Museum complete with world class exhibits. What kind? Check out the show's audio and you'll learn what kind.

The Florida Oceanographic Society’s Coastal Center continues to fine tune and expand to fulfill their mission of educating locals and visitors alike on the area's unique ocean and coastal environments, and the need for all to be stewards of the environment.

Eve Samples Stuart News article about people trashing Bathtub Beach Reef Park caught a lot of attention. What does the person (Mark Perry) who initiated the areas first beach clean-ups over 25 years ago feel is the solution? Listen to the show and you'll know.

Is relief on the way for the shallow Cross Roads area of the channel leading into the Manatee Pocket and the St. Lucie River? Yes it is, but not as soon as hoped for.

Taking the show on the road is a blast! Where where the show broadcast from this Friday? Tune in and find out—that's part of the fun.
