Here are some views that excerpted from the Gulf Side Reef drawings – these are taken from original reef design drawings done by the state dept of parks and recreation when the state park was being constructed. Thanks to Roy Larsen we also now have the original two AutoCAD drawings of the Gulf Side Reef converted to a pdf format.  You can view them under the two drawing links listed on our Plans and Documents page.

• 4th largest cleanup in the world
• 32,696 volunteers
• 416,279 lbs of debris removed
• 1,966 miles of beaches, lakes & waterways cleaned
• Over 500 cleanup sites statewide

The cleanup is currently planned for the third weekend in September.  Mike Sandler is coordinating the efforts in the Navarre area.
