The Rutgers Cooperative Extension is offering their annual "Coastal Stewardship" course. The Coastal Stewardship course (formerly known as the Shellfish Gardener course) aims to educate stakeholders about the ecology of Barnegat Bay and to promote responsible stewardship of coastal marine resources while using shellfish biology, restoration, and aquaculture as the primary teaching tools.
These classes take place at the RCE of Ocean County, 1623 Whitesville Rd. Toms River, NJ. The cost of the course is $75 per person (checks made out to Ocean County Board of Agriculture).
