Some 60 sixty concrete cubes (3’ x 3’ x 3’) were placed on the Buckeye Reef site last week, with an additional deployment of another 60 cubes planned this week.

“This project was funded by a $60,000 grant received from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, with a $3,000 match provided by the Taylor County Board of County Commissioners,” Marine & Natural Resources Extension Agent Geoff Wallat said.
