This spring, the Magothy River Association was part of a large effort to add 200 additional reef balls to Noah’s reef off Dobbins Island! Reef balls help restore fish habitat in the Magothy. Thanks goes to these groups for making it possible to deploy the reef balls within a short window of opportunity: Coastal Conservation of Maryland, Cossentino Contracting, Maguire Marine Construction, Cypress Marina, and Twin Harbors Marina. Special thanks to MRA volunteer, Mike Maquire for coordinating the effort and getting the job done.

The MRA is proud to support the Coastal Conservation of Maryland reef ball project and now has a special MDE permit to deploy these reef balls off Dobbins Island. This permit will allow MRA to partner with local schools, giving students the opportunity to build reef balls and get involved HANDS ON with Bay restoration activities.
