 As we cruise into the heart of Florida’s “storm season”, Museum Manager Thomas Lockyear will explore the history of hurricanes that have impacted our area and how they have shaped the communities and culture of the region. Mr. Lockyear will also include a detailed account of his experiences with the restoration of the museum in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma and discuss planning and procedures associated with protecting the building and its collection. Members of the Collier County Museums Education Team will be on site prior to the talk with a “Save Your Stuff” clinic, providing demonstrations and supplies for salvaging storm-damaged family heirlooms and other items.
