AIA JS: Ocean Fun Days

May 19 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

AIA Jersey Shore (AIA JS) and the AIA New Jersey Emerging Professionals Community (EPiC) will be participating in Ocean Fun Day on May 18th and 19th.   Members will have the opportunity to engage the public and participate in the event festivities. 

This is a two day event at two separate locations: 

Saturday May 18 – Island Beach State Park
Time: 11am – 3pm
Location: Island Beach State Park, Bathing Pavilion 1

Sunday May 19 – Sandy Hook
Time: 11am – 3pm  
Location: NJ Sea Grant Headquarters Building #22 in Fort Hancock, Sandy Hook  

Per the event website:
Come to Ocean Fun Days and celebrate waves of ocean discovery! Enjoy exhibits, classes, nature tours, and children’s activities all about our coastal environment. You’ll have a great time learning the science of our shorelines and how to care for them for years to come!

A record number of exhibitors have already committed to be a part of this year’s event. Activities at both locations include seining, coastal crafts, an energy-saving scavenger hunt, youth fishing clinics, face painting, touch tanks, and the NJSGC’s famous fiddler crab races.

The Sandy Hook location will also include guided tours of many of Sandy Hook’s historic sites and an open house at the NOAA/James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory. A complimentary shuttle bus service will be available at Sandy Hook to take visitors to tour sites.

Members and guests interested in attending on behalf of AIA JS or AIA NJ EPiC are asked to RSVP in advance.
