9/17 Open House At Ru Marine Field Station & Jacques Cousteau Facilities - The Fisherman

9/17 Open House At Ru Marine Field Station & Jacques Cousteau Facilities

 The Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve (JC NERR) and Rutgers University Marine Field Station (RUMFS) are hosting open house celebrations at each of their two New Jersey locations on September 17 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

This year marks the 50 anniversary of RUMFS AND the 25th anniversary of the JC NERR, and the facilities are inviting members of the public to join in the celebration through their September 17th open house (outdoor only event, to be held rain or shine.)  It’s your chance to meet Rutgers and JC NERR researchers and scientists and explore the exciting research happening in the Great Bay/Mullica River estuary and beyond: with interactive booths, touch tank, children’s activities, RUMFS 50th Anniversary Merchandise, invited speakers, and more!

Advanced tickets are required for the Rutgers University Marine Field Station at the end of Great Bay Blvd in Little Egg Harbor, while the open house at Jacques Cousteau NERR is open to all at 130 Great Bay Boulevard, also in Little Egg Harbor.

Keep in mind that RUMFS ticketed visitors will have to walk across the 1/4-mile causeway to the building as boats are not allowed to dock at the Field Station.   Visitation of the booths at RUMFS will be available by pre-registered time slots. To better accommodate the crowds and to improve your experience, we are asking participants to register for arrival times.  There are limited tickets available for you and up to five guests.
