Jul 15 all-day
Marsh Madness @ Barnegat Bay Marshes

Annual Barnegat Bay marsh clean-up conducted by the Junior Sailing Program of the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association (BBYRA) and Save Barnegat Bay. Each participating Yacht Club selects the youth’s favorite local marsh and plans to rally hand picked trash and debris to their coach boat and then landward to the Club or municipality for proper disposal.

In 2018, over 390 individual sailors removed 57 bags of trash from our beloved, sensitive marsh areas. All 12 clubs in the BBYRA participated! Our goal for 2019 is to host a bay-wide clean-up…including all the clubs in the south bay too!

Virtual Science Talk: People’s Effect on Terrapins @ Virtual

Virtual Science Talk: People's Effect on Terrapins @ Virtual

This virtual event is something you are not going to want to miss! R.S.V.P. to Graceanne at [email protected] to get your ZOOM link to attend this event.

Diamond Back Terrapins in the Barnegat Bay are heavily impacted by people. Save Barnegat Bay awarded Emma Riley an award at the Jersey Shore Science Fair for her exceptional work on heavy medals and their effect on terrapins. Joined by her peer Brady Nichols and his stellar work on the heat of roads and their likely effect on terrapin eggs, both students will present their findings and answer questions about their science.

Emma and Brady are students at the Marine Academy of Technology and Environmental Science studying under the guidance of Dr. John Wnek, the leading expert on our resident terrapin population. This event is a great opportunity to learn about this keystone species!
