Friends of Gumbo Limbo “Bring Back the Tower” Campaign

by Les Wilson

The Friends of Gumbo Limbo is an organization of Boca Raton residents dedicated to inspiring stewardship of coastal and marine ecosystems, especially through support of Boca Raton’s Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. They have just launched a campaign to bring back the tower at Gumbo Limbo. Those who remember the previous one know how amazing it was to climb and have a vista across the intercoastal and the nature center itself. The “Bring Back the Tower Campaign” has been kick started by a generous donation by the Kosowsky family of Boca Raton in memory of their son Jacob who was tragically killed in a car crash. The fund has been seeded with $250,000 and seeks raise $500,000 to reconstruct a 40 foot modern and ADA compliant version of the tower.

Help Bring Back the Tower

You can donate to Bring Back The Tower online or onsite at the Gumbo Limbo Gift shop. Or call 561-544-8650 for more information. To learn more about the Friends of Gumbo Limbo and all the work they are doing, watch our recent BocaMatters interview with its president Michele Peel.

From the Friends of Gumbo Limbo:

With the addition of a new inclined elevator at the reconstructed 40 foot tower, everyone will be able to enjoy the magnificent views of the lush mangrove hammock, the Intracoastal, and the Boca Raton skyline.
Be part of the solution to helping our beloved Gumbo Limbo tower rise again!  … Very soon, you will rise to the top of the Tower and look out at that view…and you will know in your heart that your gift was worthwhile. After all, you will be providing that precious view for thousands of visitors who would not otherwise be able to enjoy its magic. 

From the Friends of Gumbo Limbo Board and Staff
