Butch Wilson's Eco-History Tour Featured At Museum Meet

LABELLE, FL. -- Don't miss Butch Wilson's program "Historical Eco-Tours" which will begin at 7 p.m. on Monday March 9 at the Hendry County Cooperative Extension Dallas Townsend Building located at 1085 Pratt Blvd. in LaBelle.

Learn about the Clewiston Museum's Historical Eco-Tours which feature the Clewiston Museum, Stormwater Treatment Area 5," One of Top 5 Florida Birding Hotspots, and the famous Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum at the Seminole Indian Reservation at Big Cypress.

Butch Wilson is a sixth generation Floridian who grew up on the southern shores of Lake Okeechobee. As a young boy, he enjoyed listening to stories of ole Florida, told to him by his great grandmother, grandparents and other Glades pioneers. This early heritage fascinated Butch and gave him an early appreciation for Florida History, Lake Okeechobee, and the wonders of the Everglades. 

Butch graduated from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee with a Bachelor of Arts in History. He was employed with United States Sugar Company for 32 years before retiring and starting a new career at the Clewiston Museum. Butch says the museum has given him the opportunity to share his passion for nature and the area’s heritage with others.

Registration materials for the March 11-16 Big "O" Birding Festival trips and programs, including a limited number of seats on the Clewiston Museum's Historical Eco-Tour on Friday March 13th, will be available at the meeting .
