The Sea Girt Conservancy has been busy this Summer! Here’s a quick look at everything we’ve been up to…
Strategic Master Plan
SGC is working with licensed professional Landscape Architects for a Strategic Master Plan for SeaGirt Open Spaces. This will be a living document prepared by a professional Landscape Architect to be utilized for future grants and projects in SeaGirt Open Spaces. This document will be used as a guideline for future collaborations with Borough organizations to protect and preserve our open spaces.
The SGC has applied for and received grants from three (3) separate entities to date: The Monmouth Conservation Foundation, Monmouth County Open Space, and Monmouth County Audobon.
The Pollinator Garden at Edgemere Park is moving forward with the installation of deer fencing and gate, over 2000 plantings, watering, and ongoing maintenance. The next planting is being organized with the SeaGirt Elementary School to tentatively take place in mid-September.
The SGC held another successful fundraiser. This helps to move forward necessary projects within the Borough of SeaGirt. Such projects include tree planting and tree protection, invasive species removal, planting of native species to take back areas previously overrun by invasive species, work at SeaGirt Station Park, and ongoing work at Crescent Park, Edgemere Park, and the Terrace.
We’d Love to Meet You!
The SGC will be present at the Patriot Night Event on Friday, Sept.22, at The Plaza. This is a great opportunity to meet the SGC and learn how you can volunteer or become a member.
