Although recent rains have filled this portion of Bahia Grande, the majority of the bay stands dry and unproductive, blowing sand and dirt into nearby neighborhoods. Community education is one of the main focuses of the Bahia Grande educational center/mangrove nursery project being funded by the NOAA CRP grant. Shortly after this site visit, the grant agreement was finalized and the first check was sent to Ocean Trust.
