A volunteer group hoping to take strides toward the re-opening of Midnight Pass, which used to be a waterway separating Siesta and Casey keys, is now in donation mode.
The pass was eventually filled in during the early ’80s, diminishing water flow between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway.
Step one is to raise $25,000 for a study by a coastal engineer, organizers say.
