Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Complete our artificial reef expansion project, increase the level of scholarships awarded, make significant increases to improvements to Navarre Park, expand the level of participation in the local organic garden project.

Increase Foundation membership and the number of volunteers. Promote the area as an ECO-Tourism destination catering to those who want the environmentally friendly vacation site.

Our volunteers have a very diverse set of backgrounds ranging from technology and marketing to the marine environment and above and underwater experts.

The increased biodiversity of fish and marine invertebrates and protection of Navarre Beach and surrounding coastal habitats through the creation and maintenance of a near shore marine sanctuary has far exceeded projected expectations. Some species of aquatic life are now common on our near-shore reefs that previously were not common. Oyster growth on our sound-side reef sites are now producing healthy populations where they were previously wiped out. Our scholarship and fund-raising events are now possible every year and have expanded to include additional opportunities. The Organic Garden is expanding it's participation. Recent construction of a dune boardwalk protects critical habitat and vegetation. Two new reefing areas have been approved and are permitted and funded to the point of RFP for construction.
