Harvey Oyer Presents "The Last Egret" at the
South Florida Science Museum

 

 

HARVEY OYER
PRESENTS THE LAST EGRET
AT THE SOUTH FLORIDA SCIENCE MUSEUM

Author and presenter, Harvey Oyer; South Florida Science Museum president and CEO, Lew Crampton; Josette Kaufman from the Marshall Foundation and
 Steve Kaufman.

 
(West Palm Beach, FL) —South Florida Science Museum president and CEO, Lew Crampton welcomed local author and Museum board member, Harvey Oyer to the Museum recently to present his new book The Adventures of Charlie Pierce, The Last Egret. Following the afternoon multimedia presentation, Oyer was available to sign books for guests.  
 
“Harvey’s book presented us with a perfect opportunity to call attention to the Museum’s environmental focus,” said Crampton, “and the kids who attended loved going back in time to participate in Everglades adventures with Charlie.”
 
The Last Egret was chosen by the Palm Beach County School District for its first-ever Read Together program, where over 15,000 children will simultaneously read the book as a community literacy project.  The Last Egret, which won a Mom’s Choice Award, is currently one of the best-selling children’s books in Florida.
 
The book signing kicked off a collaborative educational effort between the South Florida Science Museum, the Palm Beach Zoo and the Marshall Foundation, culminating in an eco-focused luncheon and community events on March 25th.
 
As a first step toward building a solid collaborative relationship with like-minded environmental advocacy organizations, leadership from the three organizations will co-present Richard Louv, a high-profile environmentalist and author of the book Last Child in the Woods , scheduled to be keynote speaker at a luncheon on March 25, 2011 at the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach.  The lunch is the first in a series of annual educational events planned by the three collaborators.
 
In addition, Louv will host a kid-friendly press conference at 10 a.m.  and an evening meet and greet and book-signing at 6 p.m., open to the community.  Both community events will be held at the Palm Beach Zoo.
 
The South Florida Science Museum delivers entertaining and educational journeys through the many worlds of science and technology for curious minds of all ages. Located just off I-95 and Southern Blvd. in West Palm Beach, the Museum features more than 50 hands-on exhibits, a digital planetarium, fresh and saltwater aquariums, as well as natural history exhibitions. 
 
New happenings at the science Museum include the Bugz exhibit, an Amateur Radio Center open on weekends and holidays as well as aquarium feedings and shark/ray petting on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 1:30 p.m. Each year the Museum welcomes more than 125,000 visitors and reaches more than 45,000 students through workshops at the Museum and outreach programs to local schools. Established in 1961, the Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to exciting curiosity and furthering the understanding and appreciation of science and technology.
 
The South Florida Science Museum is located at 4801 Dreher Trail North in West Palm Beach. Museum admission is: Adults $11.95; Seniors 62+ $10.50; and children ages three-12 $8.95, children under three years and Museum members are free.
