We have made the tough decision to cancel both of our programs this weekend because of the forecasted coastal flooding. 

Tonight’s DIY Pumpkin Face Mask is canceled. 

Tomorrow’s Great Storms presentation is also canceled. 

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Our decision was made to ensure the safety of our presenters and participants.

The Resilient LBI project is bringing together LBI communities, stakeholders, and elected officials to solidify a shared vision for a resilient barrier island. The goal of this project is to better understand the hopes of the community for the future of LBI in the face of increasing flood risks due to sea level rise. 

A big part of the project is the community engagement period. The team wants to hear from residents and visitors to learn what matters most to you. Your participation and knowledge will help make the project successful! Please join us this evening at the @lbif from 4-6PM for a scenario workshop.

Resilient LBI is a grant funded project from @nj.dep and US Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

Swipe for pictures from the last workshop we hosted at the Field Station in June. Pictures are by @rage_kg 

Learn more about the project and sign up for tonight’s workshop through the links in our bio.

Saturday we hosted our annual Shellabration! It was an overcast and windy day but we were lucky that there was no rain!! Thank you everyone who stopped by to learn about our oyster shell recycling program, listen to the music, and eat local oysters! 

The event was a fundraising for our Oyster Shell Recycling Program (@followtheshell). A program that collects oyster shells from participating restaurants and returns them to the bay at the Tuckerton Research Reef! 

@barnegatoyster set up to sell six varieties of local oysters!

@stocktonmarinescience and @stocktonshellfishlab led the educational booth. Guests learned about local bay ecology and oyster biology! 

The follow the shell program is made possible by the local participating restaurants,

This week we hosted field trips for Beach Haven School 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students! 

Students learned about local weather, oysters, terrapins, purple martins, and much more! Each student signed their name on an oyster shell that will end up back in the Barnegat Bay at The Tuckerton Research Reef, which is managed by @stocktonuniversity
