We are Making Navarre Snorkelicious with two snorkeling/diving reefs and a pier.  The reefs will be beautiful, and benefit our economy and coastal ecosystem, as well as provide marine life education to children and adults.

As residents of Navarre, we are excited about this project for three main reasons:

•    Economy            –  $1.17 Million/Yr Economic Output
•    Environment    –   Increased Biodiversity and Cleaner Water
•    Education         –   Centerpiece Amenity for Marine Science Center

The Marine Sanctuary Committee is helping to gather support and volunteers for the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup this September.

Last year there were 300 plus volunteers from the Navarre Area that cleaned up from Navarre Park on the mainland across the causeway and Navarre beach down to the National Seashore.  Here are some statistics/info from the 2008 effort:

• 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.

If you want to participate please email Dave Barker ( kykdave@usa.net ) with your contact information and what day or day (Saturday/Sunday) you can help.
