Learn about Walton’s artificial reefs in Grayton Beach

February 12, 2017

March 1, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

South Walton Artificial Reef Association will present a program on their progress of installing reefs just offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. We are not talking about taking barges of wrecked cars and washing machines to dump there. These reefs are scientifically designed and eco-friendly manmade structures which grow plant life and attract fish. Hear about the plans for the future and how scuba divers and snorkelers will delight in the new areas in which enjoy nature. See beautiful scenes of underwater life which exist right under our noses! SWARA personnel Andy McAlexander, Jim Richard and Walt Hartley will share their enthusiastic journey thus far.

The program will be held at the UF/IFAS Walton Extension Coastal Branch at 70 Logan Lane in Grayton Beach. The cost of the program is $5 (payable at the door) which includes instructional handouts and light refreshments. Seating is limited and reservations are required.

Contact Cheryl at 850-892-8172 or haneyc@ufl.edu to save your seat by the Monday before.

Master Gardeners will be on hand to take gardening questions. Soil analysis instruction and supplies will be available for $8 including shipping to the University of Florida for testing. MGs are at this location every Wednesday from 9:00 AM until noon.
