Welcome to Port Isabel and Welcome to the Coast! #TBT and here’s a look back nearly 100 years ago! Taken from the top of the Port Isabel Lighthouse towards Pelican station in the early 1920s. There is a train on the track loading and unloading for the trip back to Brownsville. Laundry on the lines, horses in the backyard, no electricity or paved roads. Running water meant you had a well or waited for the aquadores to deliver water to your house from the wells at Polangana… For more about Port Isabel history, visit the Museums of Port Isabel!

The Turtle Lady Legacy

The Museums of Port Isabel and the Laguna Madre Museum Foundation are proud to present its “Telling Our Stories” Series of 2015 on Thursday, September 24th, at the Treasures of the Gulf Museum, 317 East Railroad Avenue at 7 pm. This month’s topic will be on “The Turtle Lady Legacy”.

Mary Ann Tous, niece of famed Ila Fox Loetcher aka “The Turtle Lady”, who began her work on sea turtle conservation in 1965 and was a pioneer in her field by playing a vital role in protecting the Kemp Ridley Sea Turtles, will give a presentation on the history of the Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles and the efforts that go towards their protection. Illa was a major inspiration on her niece Mary and in 2005, Mary Ann Tous founded a non profit organization called “The Turtle Lady legacy”. Their goals are to educate and continue the safety and conservation of majestic sea turtles by following in Illa Fox Loetscher’s footsteps.  Recent events causing a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico are threatening these marine animals and their nesting habitats.

Please join us as we learn about “The Turtle Lady Legacy”. All locals and visitors are welcomed to attend this free presentation. Complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided. Free admission.
