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.” Feel free to contact us here.

The Commission meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Mantoloking Yacht Club Sailing Center. Meetings begin promptly at 4:30 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.

Environmental Commission Request for Photos

The Mantoloking Environmental Commission is requesting old and current photos showing the landscape of our town for our Environmental Resource Inventory (ERI). The ERI is a comprehensive report on the natural resource inventory of Mantoloking. As an example of what we are looking for, below are photos taken in the early 80s at Albertson Beach Access in the top row, and a photo from new house construction looking toward Albertson Access as a view of the Bay. Please send us similar photos of various locations in our town. We want all decades, and pre and post Sandy too. Please send a scan or a photo of your photos to cjlarsendesign@aol.com. It is preferable to provide individual files for each picture, together with location and dates for each.
