Several meetings were held in the fall of 2011 and throughout 2012. An introductory meeting was held at Monterey House on the Roanoke College campus, and numerous follow-ups on and off campus have introduced the greater Roanoke Valley to the project. The pictures below are from these meetings. Visit the Schedule of Events page to find out times and places for upcoming events. The Roanoke Valley Reef opened on January 25, 2013, and the exhibit continues through March 4. Link here for a slide show from the exhibit and come see the reef in person!
