Ed Caum, former Tourism Manager for Pasco County, has joined NatureCoaster.com to promote local outdoor experiences to our residents and visitors!
Diane Bedard, Florida’s Original NatureCoaster, and the creator of NatureCoaster.com commented, “Ed Caum is an extremely talented person, with a passion for this area and all its beauty. His skills of communication, photojournalism and vision of what the area offers make him the perfect addition to our NatureCoaster team.”
Ed will be contributing photos, articles, and sales efforts with local businesses and events. He loves to get out on the water, fish, and cook his catch. Recipes will follow with his catch and cook stories! Check out his latest feature article, “Swimming with Manatees Adventure.”
“This is a beautiful area with lots of coastal opportunities. I grew up on an island in Southeast Alaska where I knew the waters. Being here for six years, I am becoming familiar with this area’s bounty and who the best captains on Florida’s Nature Coast are,” said Caum.
