Choctawhatchee Bay stretches over 30 miles from one end to the other, forming the terminus of the Choctawhatchee watershed. CBA monitors water quality and seagrass in the bay, while restoring the coastline with living shorelines and reef breakwaters.
Where We Work
Coastal dune lakes occur in only a few places around the globe, and fifteen have formed in Walton County.
Choctawhatchee River is the third largest in Florida by volume and the fourth longest waterway in the state. The river provides 90% of the freshwater in Choctawhatchee Bay, and remains home to a wide variety of plants and animals.
The source of saltwater in our brackish estuary, the Gulf of Mexico is critical to both our environment and our economy.
