The organization and other marine groups donated and installed 13 reef balls on the ocean floor off of Delray Beach in Palm Beach County.

Each of the 7-foot-by-6-foot reef balls were dropped earlier this month in the Delray Dredge Hole. The reef is located about a half-mile off the coast of Delray Beach.

It will make up a 32-acre underwater reef park known as No Shoes Reef 4. The reef will provide educational opportunities for students.
