Education

CBA works with 3rd and 5th graders across Okaloosa and Walton Counties to learn about marsh ecosystems, raise smooth cordgrass, and restore real shorelines. Through Grasses in Classes, students are inspired to become the next generation of water stewards.

Oyster Shell Recycling and Living Shorelines

Oyster shell, recycled from local restaurants, is used in living shorelines to create reef breakwaters. Living shorelines provide habitat for wildlife while reducing shoreline erosion.

Water Quality Monitoring

Every month CBA staff and water quality monitoring volunteers head out to the bay to measure salinity, pH, sedimentation, light attenuation, and so much more.
