The reefs are indeed installed and fully visible from the surface. Several Marine Sanctuary Committee members took to the water to check out the reefs up close by diving and snorkeling them. They do look impressive and the fish seemed to be enjoying the new structures already.

Here are some shots taken by Mike Sandler  on one of the first dives of the Gulf Side reefs

The Navarre Chamber Foundation  will have an informational booth at Fun Fest (Fri & Sat – Apr 27 & 28) to inform the community about the Marine Sanctuary progress,  sell nature walk bricks and promote the Run for the Reef.    We’ll also  staff the beer booth Saturday night.  The Foundation will get to keep tips received during the beer booth shift.

Additional volunteers are needed, particularly Saturday evening at the beer booth  from 4 pm to 7 pm.  Please contact Nancy Sandler (nasandler@bellsouth.net)  if you wish to help.

Thanks to those who have already volunteered and a big thank you to the Navarre Chamber for donating part of the Fun Fest 5K Proceeds to the Marine Sanctuary program.

Fun Fest will be in the Navarre Beach County Parking Lot next to the Pier.

The Marine Sanctuary Committee booth at this year’s Fun Fest was the place to be. Nancy Sandler (Community Awareness Coordinator) and her band of merry volunteers made a big splash telling visitors about the recent program status and providing information on what’s to come. T-shirts and bumper stickers were snapped up in record numbers and over $200 was raised to aid program improvements and reef maintenance once the reefs are installed. Additionally – twenty new volunteers signed up to help Make Navarre Snorkelicious!

On May 7th Nancy and company were at it again – this time at the Sunset Stampede, handing out Run for the Reef registration forms and providing information on the reef program to the over large crowd at the annual evening 5K headquartered at Juana’s.

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped man the booth at these events!

The Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary Committee’s plans for the Reef Sponsorship Program won’t be officially unveiled until after the Impact 100 Grant Winners have been decided in October.    Even so – the program has generated early interests.   Three companies or individuals have already stepped up to the plate to make pledges of support:

Best Western Navarre

Deep & Wide Dredging, Inc.

Mike & Nancy Sandler

Thank you to these individuals and companies for their leadership in helping to Make Navarre Snorkelicious!
