How is the Water? Student Grant Final Presentation

Student Grant Final Presentation
August 10, 2020 4:00 PM

Thanks to the legendary Paul “Pete” Mclain, since 2007, we have been awarding student researchers grant money to study different elements of Barnegat Bay. Each summer awardees are paired with our local scientists and experts so that they can develop a research question, collect data, and present their findings.

This summer we are pleased to invite you to our virtual presentation where students from our Water Quality team and our Sedge Island Marine Conservation Zone team present the data they found.

The Water Quality team has been testing water within the Toms River through the towns of Toms River, Beachwood, Pine Beach, South Toms River, Ocean Gate, and Island Heights. They will tell us about the water where we swim and sail!

The Sedge Island Marine Conservation Zone team compares the diversity of fish and crustaceans (bait fish, blue crabs, shrimp, and grasses, etc) within and just outside of the only marine conservation zone in the state of NJ. The SIMCZ is located on the backside of Island Beach State Park just north of the Barnegat Inlet.

This event will take place on Zoom on August 10th at 4pm.
