“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” -Benjamin Franklin
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!
Join us April 9th at 6pm as we explore the journey of the American Eel. Barnegat Bay Partnership and Save Barnegat Bay are teaming up to bring you a noteworthy hands on learning experience! Barnegat Bay Partnership is conducting a long term monitoring project on juvenile (glass) eels. Glass eels are currently migrating into Barnegat Bay from the Sargasso Sea, and finding their way into our rivers, creeks, and streams. The Barnegat Bay EcoCenter is located next to the Long Swamp Creek where we can find these baby eels! During this program you will have the chance to see these interesting creatures up close and personal, hear from the scientists studying their migration, and learn about their importance to our ecosystem. This is a unique program you are not going to want to miss!
ALL AGES WELCOME!
