The Barnegat Bay Watershed and Estuary Foundation is now The Barnegat Bay Foundation. Our mission is to support the work of the Barnegat Bay Partnership. Recently, the BBF distributed fourteen $1000 scholarships to high school seniors throughout the watershed as well as three $2500 grants to Friends of Island Beach state Park, Cattus Island and LBI for dune and wet land restoration. We also facilitated the BBP move into their new home by paying for new carpeting.

The BBF is pleased to offer beautiful reproductions of the 1932 Henry H. Horrocks map of the Barnegat Bay, entitled "A map of Barnegat Bay and Surrounding Country." Black and white maps (24" x 36") are available for $25. Color maps (very high quality reproductions of an original hand-colored by Lucy Bottomley) are available for $75 (glossy photographic paper; 20" x 30 ") or $125 (higher quality Summerset velvet paper; 24" x 36"). Add $4.00 per map for first class shipping and handling in a protective mailing tube. These make wonderful gifts for anyone who likes the Barnegat Bay. They are great conversation pieces, packed with details that will keep you entertained for hours. The map includes Forked River, Bay Head, Lakehurst, and Barnegat, and shows dozens of watercraft. Below is a photograph of the entire map, followed by two close-up photographs showing details on the map. Act now! Quantities are limited!
Please contact the BBF for additional information or to arrange pick-up of a map.
This year's festival theme is "Barnegat Bay: Yours to Restore and Explore". We could never have imagined last June what was in store for us here on the Jersey Shore by October's end. To celebrate new beginnings and to renew our commitment to educating as many as we can to the wonders of our precious natural resource, the Barnegat Bay, join us at the Wanamaker Complex in Island Heights on Sunday June 2, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Rain or Shine).
