Their partners, including Barnegat Bay Partnership, Save Barnegat Bay, Clean Ocean Action, American Littoral Society, Ocean County Soil Conservation District, NJ Fish and Wildlife, and Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ will have informational and  environmental tables and displays. Island Beach Nature Staff will be at the pavilion offering free daily programs.
