An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating until August 31, 2019
Come down to the first bathing Pavillion and check out the Island Beach Nature Program’s displays and tanks! Everyday all summer we hold FREE programs!
Touch Tank Time 11am-12pm & 4pm-5pm
Seining 12pm & 3pm
Trail Tales 1:30pm
They’re perfect for all ages and entire families! You will need to reserve your space the day of before the seining tours or Trail Tales because there are limited spaces. Parents or guardians must accompany their underage children.
For our seining tours you will take a short 5 minute interpretative native plant walk over to the bay across from the Pavillion and then our expert Naturalists will teach you how to wield a seine net. You will get a chance to experience the Barnegat Bay in a whole new way and you will get to interact with and learn about many local species!
Our Naturalists will be at the Pavillion everyday from 11am-5pm. They can answer any questions you might have about our programs, the history of the park, or any natural phenomena you’ve noticed. They love it when you bring interesting things you’ve found on the beach and they’ll help you to identify them!
