The Ono Men’s Club graciously donated $1,000 to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Foundation during the joint meeting with the Ono Women’s Club on Thursday, April 6.

DISL’s Executive Director Dr. John Valentine spoke during to the group about the importance of Coastal Alabama’s biodiversity.

“Ono Island is located in one of the most biologically diverse coastal settings in the northern Gulf of Mexico. It is incredibly beautiful in every way you can imagine,” Dr. Valentine shared.

About 70 members of the Ono Island Community attended the meeting.

The Ono Island Community is located on a natural barrier island separated from downtown Orange Beach, Alabama, and Perdido Key, Floriday, by the Old River. Bayou St. John separates the rest of the island from Orange Beach. The community has a strong connection to Alabama’s water resources.

Donations to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Foundation support the programs and research at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.
