For Eddie the Map Guy

Got your message. Sounds intriguing. Not blowing you off: super busy with non-beach things.  Have you talked with Laura Tiu/the June Grass Working Group? She reached out last year, they have an interesting research project in the works.  I try to send interested parties their way. Will be in touch. 😉




Technical Difficulties

Hi Beach Lovers!

I have several old reports that apparently didn’t post. I’m going to re-upload them now. Apologies in advance for any annoyance this may cause on your phone/in your inbox.

Thanks for all the reports & please keep them coming!

Also, please consider checking out what the good folks at the June Grass Working Group are doing and maybe helping them out with emailed reports or on the iNaturalist app.

Okaloosa Island 6/15/19 at 3:46

Ronnie K. reports:

“This was taken in front of Summer Place, we walked down to the pier and it was about the same. Some of the june grass was washing up on the beach but most of it stayed in the water . I’ll rate this an 8 on the funky factor, hopefully it will move on quickly.
We drove over to Henderson Beach to let the kids swim. The water at HB was a 2-3, it had minor grass but was clear in comparison to OIB.
I’ll do morning updates this week while I’m here. ”


Mike G. reports:

“Just got into the Azure Complex on Okaloosa Island. There was no June Grass on the beach but it extended out 25 feet from the shore. Once you get past it, it’s clear.”
