Marking a milestone

For Hometown News

STUART -- In 1978, Florida Oceanographic Society had the foresight to hire Mark Perry as its very first staff member.

Thirty-five years later, Perry is the executive director and a passionate and dedicated environmental leader. He is the driving force behind Florida Oceanographic's evolution from a small group of active citizens engaged in local research efforts, to the beautiful 57-acre Coastal Center on Hutchinson Island that focuses on environmental education and research.

The community and local waterways benefit from Perry's vision, enthusiasm and commitment to Florida Oceanographic. He is an ambassador and an environmental titan in the state of Florida.

Florida Oceanographic Society's board of directors, members, staff, volunteers, and community partners are profoundly grateful to Mark Perry for his 35 years of dedicated service.

Florida Oceanographic Society is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1964 with the mission to inspire environmental stewardship of Florida's coastal ecosystems through education and research. The 57-acre Coastal Center is located on Hutchinson Island in Stuart, situated between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean. As a leading state and nationally recognized environmental organization, Florida Oceanographic offers educational programs for all ages and conducts research and restoration programs that lead to healthy coastal ecosystems.
