Build Noah’s Reef

October 16 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us to build a reef in Noah’s honor


Join us on Saturday October 16th from 10am-2pm to help build artificial reef structures called reef balls.

All ages and abilities can participate in some way, so come one and come all.

Participants will work in small groups to assemble reef ball molds, mix concrete(with mixers or by hand) and pour up to 36 reef balls(or more)

This is an outdoor event with ample space to distance, and will include entertainment and food.


We lost our sweet Noah at the age of 14 tragically to suicide on September 28, 2019. Noah Anderson was a graduate of Cape St. Claire Elementary and Magothy Middle School and attended 9th grade at Broadneck High School.

He had a love and a thirst for knowledge on “how all things worked” and dreamed of being an architect living in Seattle. He spent hours building things with his hands in the backyard and was famous for sticking duct tape on something if all else failed. Noah shared a deep love for being on the water with his family and truly loved the waterfront community he lived in, Cape St. Claire.

He enjoyed fishing, boating and trips with his Dad to Angler’s to get all the newest fishing gear. He developed an affinity for sailing and going to sailing camp was the highlight of his summers. His beautiful baby blue eyes gleamed with pride whenever he shared all the things he knew about catching fish, sailing boats, or how to fix just about everything .

He enjoyed his time with his family, friends and loved them all dearly. He enjoyed talking with them about fishing, sailing, fast cars, video games, music, and his beloved Seattle Seahawks.

Our family believes there is no better way to channel his enthusiastic “Let’s Build it!” spirit  than to roll up our sleeves, get messy, and create reef balls that not only reflect his love for making things by hand but also because these reef balls will assist in keeping his beloved Magothy a healthy aquatic ecosystem. 

Various Mental Health Groups will be on hand to share beneficial information and programs that reflect our family’s continued advocacy to make mental health care more accessible to all and to break the stigmas associated with mental health conditions.

The reef balls built in Noah’s honor will be placed as an addition to the Dobbin’s Island Reef Site, one that has been managed and championed by the Magothy River Association.
