Mission Statement of the Mantoloking Environmental Commission (March 2013)

“The Mantoloking Environmental Commission seeks to improve the environmental quality of our land, bay, and ocean. Through education and outreach, the Commission encourages citizens to incorporate environmentally responsible practices into homes, gardens, and daily life. The Commission’s goal is to improve the health of the land and the surrounding waters while reducing the potential to harm the environment.”

The Commission meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Mantoloking Yacht Club Sailing Center. Meetings begin promptly at 5:00 p.m.

The Environmental Commission has a Seaside Gardening Primer available for all residents. The primer contains helpful hints and suggestions for “going native” with your landscaping. Click here for more information.
