The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation has been artificial reef building over the past 7 years. The Foundation is in Jupiter and pursued the foundation's mission of "enhancing and protecting the marine environment" by raising over $2 million to build over 1.5 miles of new reefs offshore of Jupiter and Juno Beach.

The Foundation was created to honor the memory of Andrew Harris who was struck by a boat while snorkeling in the Jupiter Inlet on June 8, 2014. The foundation’s work will help assure the long-term health and vibrancy of the local marine environment where Andrew loved to dive and fish.

The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation is a 501C3 founded in July 2014 that strives to build and enhance the marine environment in northern Palm Beach County by creating artificial reefs with huge 8,000 pound “Bahamian coral head” inspired modules to expand our marine habitat. 

This summer another big project with 2,500 eight-foot-long concrete culverts with 18" - 30" inside diameters deployed on our offshore sites. The culverts will both extend and intensify the reefs.  This will create huge new reef structures and connecting the existing structures with trails.

Your support of the foundation is greatly appreciated. For more information on the foundation and upcoming fund raisers or to make a tax-deductible donation to building reefs off Juno Beach and Jupiter coastline, please visit http://andrewredharrisfoundation.org. Thank you for your support!
