Celebrate Conservation With REEF Fest 2017 in Key Largo

-

Marine conservation is being celebrated in Key Largo, Florida from September 28 to October 1, 2017 at REEF Fest 2017.

The annual celebration of the positive impact marine conservation has had on the Florida Keys promises to provide a weekend packed with fun and engaging activities. The celebration hosted by the Reef Environmental Education Foundation has organised a series of events, seminars, diving activities, and a banquet to increase awareness of conservation in the area.

The event kicks off with a social on Thursday evening (Sep. 28) which will run from 18:00 to 21:00, and will feature a seminar by Dr. Stephanie Green on fisheries management and conservation as well as an informal picnic dinner.

The event reaches a high on Saturday night where after a day of activities the “For the Love of the Sea” banquet will be held. The banquet is sponsored by the Divers Alert Network, costs $65 per head and will include a silent auction. The following morning the fun resumes with a series of diving and snorkelling trips to the Keys.

During the whole weekend, the seminars are open to the general public, and will be held at the Murray Nelson Government Centre. You can find the complete schedule here, although if you see a seminar you want to attend then pre-registration is recommended. Along with the seminars and the socials on Thursday and Friday, there are also free events open to the general public.

  1. We would like to work with you to sell Tank Rum at your September “REEF Fest 2017” event. How can we help coordinate it? Tank Rum is now available throughout Florida, even though it is just being shipped to various stores, so the logistics may take some effort. TBD.

    Who is a good contact on your side?
