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.

News and Updates From the Environmental Commission:

Dune It Right: By the NJ Sea Grant Consortium

The Dune It Right manual answers a variety of questions that we have heard from people and groups like you. It will include brief answers to those questions from experts in the area and links to more resources. Among the issues we will address are: permits and permissions, preparing a dune for planting, what to plant when, where and how; what not to plant, amendments to increase the success of your plantings, and sources of native plants for your restoration. We hope that you find this useful as you work to rebuild or build stable, attractive dunes to protect your home or community from future storm damage.

Please take time to review this manual. If you have comments or questions please email Dr. Peter Rowe.
