Celebrate Earth Day With The American Littoral Society

At the Littoral Society, we believe that every day is Earth Day. But that doesn’t stop us from celebrating April 22 every year with a slate of Earth Day themed events.

This year the Littoral Society’s Earth Day activities will begin on Thursday, April 20 with a presentation on how people can reduce our impact on the planet. The event will be held at Bridgeton, NJ’s Cumberland County Library.

Then, on Saturday, April 22 we will host a volunteer day at our Slade Dale Sanctuary living shoreline project in Point Pleasant, NJ and a Jamaica Bay beach cleanup at Spring Creek Park in Queens, NY.

Our Earth Day celebration will conclude on Sunday, April 23, with a dune grass planting in Asbury Park, NJ

​Read on for more information about all of these local activities.

Slade Dale Spruce Up
On Saturday, April 22, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., volunteers can lend a hand with annual maintenance on our living shoreline project at the Slade Dale Sanctuary. In addition to adding recycled Christmas trees collected over the winter, we will also be installing coir logs to help stabilize the shoreline.
