Education & Outreach
In an ideal world, everyone who lived in or visited the Barnegat Bay watershed would understand and respect how the bay's ecosystem works and live their lives in a way that had minimal negative impact on it. In reality though, it takes hard work and persistence to educate the diverse citizenry of the Barnegat Bay watershed about how to live in harmony with a healthy bay.
In the Barnegat Bay watershed, a number of well-established and active organizations work hard to implement various forms of public education and outreach on watershed- and estuary-related topics. These BBP partner organizations provide essential education and outreach programs and materials on a wide range of topics from water conservation to pinelands ecology.
The Barnegat Bay Partnership Office plays a key role in creating and supporting collaborations between its partners on education and outreach initiatives. In addition, the BBP Office takes the lead on several of its own education and outreach initiatives.
