The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife, in partnership with the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ, is offering a 3-day 2-night locavore program for adults interested in learning what's edible in and around Barnegat Bay. The program will be August 11-13 at the Sedge House,  a renovated ducking hunting lodge with 7-bunk rooms where participants will live a conservationist lifestyle.


Participants will spend time identifying and harvesting edible plants, algae, digging clams, netting crabs, and fishing, all while learning about the salt marsh ecosystem, conservation, and renewable resources.  For more information view the page and/or flyer linked below:
