LBT Field Station

Long Beach Township Mayor Joseph Mancini envisioned the concept of constructing a marine education field station in Holgate for many years.

In 2017, the Township acquired a waterfront parcel in Holgate on Osborn Avenue. The vision was to create a space as a clearinghouse for information exchange and a think tank reflecting our maritime culture and current day challenges and opportunities.

The building was completed in 2020 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to open it to the public. We look forward to sharing this unique community space with you soon!
