ARC Welcomes the Coral Restoration Foundation September 17th @ noon

We are very excited to announce a special guest speaker who will present the incredible accomplishments and ongoing research with the Coral Restoration Foundation. We will be presenting a check to their organization for ongoing research with Coral Reefs. We will raffle off a $200, $150 and $100 GCs to Atlanta Aquarium. Rit has also generously donated (2) Jaebo PP-15 powerheads and a DCP-6500 return pump.

Date: September 17th
Special Guest: Coral Restoration Foundation - Ashley with the Coral & Restoration Team
We will be presenting a 5k donation to their program
Time: Noon
Location: Steve Shindell’s office complex (see below for directions)
3200 Downwood Cir Nw
Atlanta, GA 30327




Coral Restoration Foundation is making exciting progress in the restoration of coral reefs in the Florida Keys and in the Caribbean. Ashley Hill, the Volunteer & Education Coordinator, will be sharing the good news about how coral reef nurseries and out planting techniques are employed to restore coral reefs. Ashley studied Environmental Science and Marine Ecology and has been with Coral Restoration Foundation for two years.


*Directions to Steve Shindell's office building -

From I-75 South-bound:
Take Exit #255, West Paces Ferry and Northside Parkway. Turn left off the exit ramp. You will pass under I-75. Turn right at the first light onto Northside Parkway. Go to the second light, and turn right on Howell Mill Road. Go up the hill, and turn left on the first street, Downwood Circle. Go straight on Downwood Circle into the parking deck (all the way down the road). The building will be on your left.

From I-75 North-bound:
Take Exit #255, West Paces Ferry and Northside Parkway. Turn right off the exit onto Northside Parkway. Take an immediate right onto Howell Mill Road. Go up the hill, and turn left on the first street, Downwood Circle. Go straight on Downwood Circle into the parking deck (all the way down the road). The building will be on your left.

And just the usual reminder - we are guests at this medical office complex, please absolutely NO SMOKING in or around the building.

in addition to gift card ti Atlanta aquarium (@rit's) we have equipment to be raffled off too, you lucky rascals, since i would not be able to make this one, everyone chances are looking pretty good to win.

once again, all raffles are free to paid members ( one ticket per person, must be present to win ).

Bringing the kids to a meet like this isn't going to be fun. I probably won't make it... Dang though.... I'd be in AQ Heaven with a $200 gc!

We had a great time today hosting AshleyHill from the Coral Restoration Foundation. She gave a great presentation and made time to answer all our questions. I'm planning a trip to visit them to to see some of what we heard about today in person, anyone else interested?

Thanks again to Ashley for coming out to visit us today!

We had light attendance. So just about everyone won a grest raffle item.

I do want to thank Ashey and the CRF for presenting their amazibg coral preservation program. This month ARC donated $7200 to their joint effort with NOAA. We donated the funds in David Grimm's memory.

Wish I could've been there!

On a side note...a friend of mine runs a charter bus company. We've talked about taking a bunch of volunteers down there to help out over say 3 or 4 days. That's still an option. To make the trip in one haul takes 2 drivers but that can be arranged.

Would love to have made this one. It's my birthday weekend and my friend planned a surprise trip for this afternoon.

Got to fly the 737 flight sim in the Delta museum!!! Only killed everyone once lol.
