Free Event

The Monmouth University Urban Coast Institute will host a symposium exploring the results of a three-year comprehensive study of the health of Barnegat Bay on Tuesday, November 10, 2015. The event, titled “What Lies Beneath: Barnegat Bay,” will feature presentations by three groups of researchers who worked on the study.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) initiated the study to determine the sources and extent of environmental problems in the bay, and identify actions that could be taken to slow and ultimately reverse the bay’s decline. Ten independent research projects were launched to determine the bay’s needs, three of which will be presented at the symposium.

Members of the public are welcome to attend.
