Siesta Key Association members dropped 35 additional reefs to clean up the Grand Canal on Feb. 25.
Siesta Key Association members continued the Grand Canal Regeneration Project by installing 35 additional mini reefs to help purify the Siesta Key waters on Feb. 25.
Members watched as the reefs — which attract small fish and marine life that filter and add oxygen to the water — beneath the docks of various Siesta Key homes. The hope is these reefs and the subsequent marine life will result in clearer waters in the canal. The association members plan to install more reefs soon.
