Ongoing Events

American Littoral Society

The American Littoral Society (ALS) is a valued partner of the Barnegat Bay Partnership, and we work together to protect the valuable natural resources of our area. Part of protecting these resources is to empower people to care for the coast through advocacy, learning, and conserving. Join the ALS on one of their field trips and learn how to become a better steward of the Barnegat Bay and the littoral zone. http://www.littoralsociety.org/local_field_trips.aspx

Workshops Announced for "Discovering Barnegat Bay," a Guide Designed for Teachers

Discovering Barnegat Bay is a publication created for educators. It is a 340-page interdisciplinary guide that addresses the historical, cultural, and natural resources of the Barnegat Bay watershed. The guidebook was a cooperative effort between Ocean County Soil Conservation District and members of the Barnegat Bay Watershed Environmental Educators Roundtable and funded by the Barnegat Bay Partnership. Discovering Barnegat Bay will be introduced to educators and will be available for purchase at a series of workshops scheduled for various host locations in Ocean County. Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity for you and your students. You will find additional information about the guidebook and a workshop registration form contained in a Special Barnegat Bay Edition of The Tutor by clicking here.

Workshops for Children, Teachers, and So Much More

In addition to the educational exhibits, Jenkinson's Aquarium offers workshops for children of all ages, as well as professional development workshops for teachers and group tours for schools and scout groups. Groups are provided a general tour of the building and can choose between a number of Focus Programs that will highlight a chosen topic. If your group is unable to make it to the aquarium, we can come to you through our Outreach Program.
