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.

News and Updates From the Environmental Commission:

Barnegat Bay Blitz (Waterfront Cleanup)

Friday June 8th beginning at 9:30 am

Meet at the entrance to MYC on Bay Avenue

The Barnegat Bay Blitz is a watershed wide clean-up hosted by NJDEP Government Relations. This event was established to celebrate and protect the Barnegat Bay and to educate residents in the watershed how they are connected to the Barnegat Bay, in addition to removing a significant amount of debris. There is a quick meeting and then the clean-up will be from 10:00 am till noon. We will be cleaning the shoreline at Bergen Ave, Lagoon Lane, Bay Avenue, and various beach access points. All supplies will be provided.

Volunteers from NJDEP, schools, 33 municipal partners and Barnegat Bay advocates participate in this event. Please join in this effort to keep our bay pristine so that we can enjoy all of our watersports. See you Friday.
