About this event

Join us for a snorkel to the St. Croix East End Marine Park (STXEEMP) demonstration Coral Nursery. The demonstration nursery, installed in 2019 provides the public with the opportunity to experience a taste of coral restoration efforts taking place in the territory. Participants will learn more about coral gardening, the process of reef regeneration, and have a firsthand look at some of the organisms that call the adjacent coral reef and seagrass beds home. Participants who wish to attend must be strong swimmers with the ability to swim 0.15 miles in open water conditions. Snorkel vests are required and will be provided, however participants are welcomed to bring their own. Snorkeling gear can also be provided upon request with a 48 hr. notice. This educational event is restricted to participants age 15 and up.
