The Marine Sanctuary will have a booth at the Third Annual Panhandle Phunfest in Navarre Park on Saturday, September 26th.  We’ll be providing information about the Marine Sanctuary, showing the new informational video and promoting the October 10th Run for the Reef 5K.   We’ll be there all day Saturday and into the evening handing out Race Registration forms and accepting race registrations.

The Phunfest will feature multiple vendors with food, arts and crafts and entertainment all day and into the night.  This will be a fun event and provides a great opportunity to inform more people about the benefits of the Marine Sanctuary and how they can help Make Navarre Snorkelicious.

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.
