Island Beach Nature Programs is a unique partnership between Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New JerseyNew Jersey Division of Parks and Forestry, Island Beach State Park, and Friends of Island Beach State Park. Here you will find information about Island Beach, natural resource programs, and how to get involved in protecting New Jersey’s largest undeveloped barrier island.


Our mission is to promote the protection of natural resources found at Island Beach State Park through education and outreach.


Island Beach State Park is one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands in the northeast and home to an amazing diversity of wildlife and plant communities. It is also one of the most popular parks in New Jersey throughout the year, especially during the summer. We are thrilled to offer programs that showcase this unique ecosystem. Here you can learn about and register for natural resource programming held at the Park.
