Your Friends are up to SOME good!

The Friends of the STXEEMP are still diligently seeking to build awareness of the territory’s first marine park–the St. Croix East End Marine Park.  We did a lot in 2013 and have so much more planned for 2014–snorkel outings, lunch seminars, bayside hikes, presentations, stand-up paddle boarding, TWO lionfish derbies and a new event, Don’t Stop Talking Fish!  Check out the Friends January newsletter for more info.

January is full of events anyone can join to learn about the Park, see the Park, experience the Park, and strive to conserve its natural and cultural resources.  Join us for one!

2nd Wednesday lunches are a fun gathering of Friends to discuss relevant marine topics like invasive species removal.
