Grant Details

General operating support of policy advocacy, research, and conservation programs to protect coastal areas and marine ecosystems in New Jersey.

Organization Background

Since 1961 we have empowered people to care for the coast through advocacy, conservation, and education. We not only provide a voice for the coast, but also give concerned citizens the knowledge and tools they need to raise their voices with us. When we restore habitat, our objective is not only to restore a dune or rebuild an oyster reef, but also to motivate people to invest sweat equity into a piece of the coast, take ownership and become committed stewards. When we educate, we don't merely provide books, CDs, or handouts. We lead students young and old into the water to get their feet wet and their hands muddy. Sitting at a computer or reading a book, people may develop an interest in the coast; standing knee deep in sea foam with sand between their toes, they will develop a passion for the coast.
