Discover The Jersey Shore: From Sandy Hook to Cape May Thursday June 24, 2021
Discover the Jersey Shore: from High Point to Cape May with Naturalist Jim Peck
We are lucky in New Jersey to have a beautiful shoreline including exceptional barrier beaches and bays. Although we may be best known for the recreational use of our beaches, we are blessed with some amazing natural areas that include Cape May, Sandy Hook and Island Beach State Park.
Presenter Jim Peck was the Education Director for the American Littoral Society, a coastal conservation group on Sandy Hook, for three years. He spent all his time educating children and adults about our fragile and amazing coastline. His talk will cover such topics as barrier beaches, the nature and origin of our sand, the effect of jetties, primary and secondary dunes, beach grass, shore birds, estuaries, maritime forests, horseshoe crabs and red knots, lighthouses, shells, ocean life and much more. He will share his knowledge, pictures and stories during this virtual presentation.
