Fun, food and myriad environmental messages came with Saturday’s first annual Reef Fest at Hawknest Beach. It wrapped up the Friends of V.I. National Park-sponsored Earth Day activities that began Friday with a fair in Cruz Bay.
“It’s one of the best places to celebrate our coral reefs with our youths,” park Superintendent Mark Hardgrove said.
Audrey Penn, the Friends program manager who organized the Reef Fest, saw it as an opportunity to get kids in the water.
