The Sedge Island Marine Conservation Zone is an ecologically sensitive ecosystem within Barnegat Bay. The creation of the Conservation Zone has helped reduce impacts of personal watercraft on submerged aquatic vegetation, which is the foundation for much of the marine life found on the bay. In addition, it has created many outdoor recreation and educational opportunities for the public, among many other benefits!
Join us to help celebrate the achievements of the Sedge Islands Marine Conservation Zone at Island Beach State Park. During the day we will have multiple tours and demonstrations available to the public, including guided osprey tours, kayaking tours, clamming demos, terrapin talks and more! Stay for lunch and enjoy a Clam Bake hosted by The Friends of Island Beach State Park at the Nature Center.
