Standing Up for the Planet with Leslie Kolovich
Enjoy the Podcast now:
Today I speak with Celeste Cobena a longtime environmental activist in the South Walton County area. Her message is to inform the community of South Walton and anyone who cares about preserving our State Parks about a proposal to put a 1650 foot boardwalk for beach access in the middle of the eastern portion of Topsail Preserve State Park. There is a public hearing July 30, 2014 at 6:00pm at the South Walton Annex on highway 331.
Topsail Preserve is one of Florida’s last pristine beaches untouched by development and home to 2 of the 15 rare coastal dune lakes in Walton County. Celeste provides history of Topsail Preserve and explains what she understands the proposal to be. The main message is we must stand up for our State Parks and conservation lands. If we don’t, the jewels we all love the most will be gone. Education is key, and understanding the importance of our ecosystems and natural habitats one begins to understand preserving land actually benefits our very existence.
Please let your voice be heard Wednesday, July 30, 2014. Topsail Preserve State Park is more than just a jewel to the state of Florida, it should be a National Treasure!

Hey there welcome to a special follow up edition on the SUP Radio show.
Dave Cornthwaite from the United Kingdom whom I spoke with a few months ago is on his way to doing his 4th adventure of his Expedition1000 project.
He sets out Monday morning June 20th from Lake Itasca, Minnesota then into the headwaters of the Mississippi River. For 85 days he’ll be paddling a total distance of 2400 miles, that’s the near equivalent of New York to Los Angeles, London to Baghdad or Brisbane to Perth. He is doing this for two great causes, The AV Foundation working to improve infrastructure in sub Saharan African schools, and CoppaFeel to break down barriers and increase awareness about detecting breast cancer early.
Dave also is an Ambassador for the Blue Project, combining sport and travel to get people looking after themselves and the environments around them.
Enjoy the podcast as I speak to Dave just hours before his Mississippi River Sup Adventure! To learn more about Expedition 1000 you can visit www.davecornthwaite.com
