Explore Our Coasts
Dr. David Kimbro and Dr. Randall Hughes work to unlock the secrets of the intertidal ecosystems that make up our coasts. In a series of short videos, they explore the inner workings of salt marshes, oyster reefs, and seagrass beds as well as the ways in which we enjoy what they offer us. Join us as we kayak, snorkel, and wade the wet and wild of the Forgotten Coast.
In the Grass, On the Reef is funded by the National Science Foundation.

We look at a different kind of effort to restore oyster habitat. The Choctawatchee Basin Alliance, along with volunteers, are working to rebuild and restore oyster reefs using recycled and bagged shell. "In the Grass, On the Reef" tagged along for a day of collecting shell, monitoring, and building reefs.
