Dale and I plan to come out early in the morning before the Alabama vs. Kentucky football game starts at 11:00am on TV.

We are very excited about the future of the Navarre Beach Marine Science Station and the great impact it will have upon the students of our community. Come on out tomorrow folks and show your support for the “new” Marine Science Station!
