2023 Rutgers University Marine Field Station & Jacques Cousteau Reserve Open House

September 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Come explore the amazing marine science taking place in your backyard.

For over 50 years, researchers have been sampling and sensing the marine and estuarine environments of Little Egg Harbor and the Great Bay. These data “paint a picture” of a shifting and changing system, illustrating not only the impacts of a dynamic climate, but also the vital role these critical habitats play. Surrounded by salt marsh and poised at the mouth of an active ocean inlet, data collected here is used to inform coastal fisheries, communities and industries about the ways in which our marine environment is adapting.

Celebrate the work of the Rutgers University Marine Field Station (RUMFS) and the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve (JC NERR) at our Open House event on Saturday, September 16thfrom 10am-3pmWe will be hosting the event at TWO locations this year: RUMFS and the JC NERR!

Meet Rutgers and JC NERR scientists and explore the exciting research in the Mullica River-Great Bay estuary & beyond: with interactive booths, critter touch tank, history & ecology talks, guided Grassle Marsh trail walks, kids activities/games, and more! 

Visitation of the booths at RUMFS will be available by pre-registered time slots. To better accommodate the crowds and to improve your experience, we are asking participants to register for arrival times. (See the left column for more details.)
