What's the best way to ring in the New Year? With a nature walk on the beach.
Join the American Littoral Society at Sandy Hook, NJ or Ft. Tilden, NY on Monday, January 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a brisk hike along the beach, dunes and woods to welcome in the New Year.
December 7 marks the one-year anniversary for the Mid-Atlantic Ocean Action Plan.
Demands to use the ocean and its natural resources are rapidly expanding. Offshore shipping traffic is increasing, demand for ocean mining is growing, plans for large offshore wind energy projects are becoming a reality, and our region’s government agencies are making big decisions that will greatly impact the health of our waters and coasts for decades to come.
At the American Littoral Society, protecting the ocean and coast from harm is central to our mission and we believe that careful, coordinated ocean planning is a useful tool to help sustain the ocean in light of these increasing demands.
To mark this occasion, we at the Littoral Society are looking back on what has happened during the first year of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Ocean Action Plan.
