Ocean Fun Days

Island Beach State Park


Seaside Park, NJ
USA

Join New Jersey Natural Gas and the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium for our tenth annual Ocean Fun Days! This popular two-day event takes place on Saturday, June 8 at Island Beach State Park and Sunday, June 9 at Sandy Hook from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Free admission both days! Enjoy hands-on marine and environmental programs and exhibits. There will be giveaways and plenty of excitement. Remember, learning about our coastal environment is fun for the whole family. Learn how to use a seine net to catch native fish, crabs and other marine creatures. Grab a fishing rod and join the youth fishing clinic. Test your boating safety knowledge or become a beachcomber and search for natural treasures on a guided tour. Hear first hand from New Jersey scientists and researchers all about the inner-workings of the ocean and the coastline and how to protect them for generations to come. As an added bonus this year on Sunday at Sandy Hook, the NOAA/National Marine Fisheries building will be open with many interactive exhibits as well as scientists and researchers on hand to share with you the exciting work they are doing. Don't miss these two days of Free Family Fun!
