UPDATE: Monday, March 23
The American Littoral Society will be postponing or canceling scheduled public events for the indefinite future based on public health advisories from the states and US Centers for Disease Control.
We are looking forward to resuming our walks, workshops and other activities when that is safe. Please stay safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing you again when circumstances allow.
UPDATE: March 16, Noon
The National Park Service has asked that we cancel all our public events on Sandy Hook through March 29, and that we restrict public access to Littoral Society HQ, which is Building 18 on Officers Row in Gateway National Recreation Area's Sandy Hook Unit.
Please check the calendar on our website for the status of any events we have scheduled. If you have already registered for an upcoming event, we will send out notices if cancellation is required.
The rapidly developing situation with COVID-19 in our region demands a cautious response to protect the public welfare and to ensure that participants in American Littoral Society events enjoy themselves and are safe. We care about the coast, and we care about all of you who live or visit here, as well as those who share our fascination with marine life and their habitats.
As a result, we are going to postpone a few of our events in the coming week, and our staff will be taking steps to care for themselves which will keep them out of our offices. We do not take this decision lightly but see it as part of our responsibility to care for our membership and the public.
We will be determining whether to conduct upcoming Littoral Society walks, events and activities on a week-to-week basis.
Since there is still a month before our 5th Annual Lobster Run, we are moving forward in the hope that we will be able to host that event in Asbury Park on April 18. However, we are also working on a contingency plans in case of a future cancellation.
Stay tuned to our website and social media for updates.
