The Reef Ball Foundation
The T.M. and Irene B. Kirbo Charitable Trust
The Charles H. Kirbo Memorial reef will be located between St. Augustine, Florida and
Jacksonville, Florida. The project is in the construction phase now and will be deployed in
the Spring of 2000. The project is a collaborative effort between the
local schools, community organizations and local businesses such as Jacksonville
University, St. Augustine and Mandarin High Schools and the local
reef research dive teams. The project is in honor of Charles Hughes Kirbo.
The goals of the project are to help restore the marine habitat off the Jacksonville
coast and provide educational and research programs for the greater Jacksonville
area. The project is a collaborative effort between the local schools,
community orgs and local businesses.
The local students and community organizations are helping with the construction and
deployment of the reef. This will be an ongoing project where the schools
and research groups will continue to build, deploy, monitor and do research on the reef.
