President Carter Visit

On December 28, 2004, President James Earl Carter brought his wife Rosalynn and all their children and most of their grandchildren for a private tour of the Calusa Heritage Trail at the Randell Research Center.  Flanked by security and buffeted by chilly winter breezes, the group spent about an hour touring the various features of Pineland site.  The images below were taken by Art Schmidt during the tour.
