The Run for the Reef is less than three weeks away.  Event coordinators have been working on their parts of the event.  It is time to get together and determine what has been done and what else needs to be done prior to that weekend.

We will meet this Thursday, September 26 at 6 pm at the Visitor Information Center/Navarre Chamber Conference room (enter through the Sound Side doors).  If you are interested in helping out with the Run come on out – we’ll find a place for you.

Committee members and others indicate more and more people are using and enjoying the reef amenities at Navarre Beach Park.   Many reports of abundant sea life on and around the reefs and almost full coverage of the basic reef structures in less than one year since deployment.  Mike Sandler snapped this photo on a recent dive of the Gulf Reef site.
