The Battle of Monmouth @ Monmouth Battlefield
Jun 16 all-day
The Battle of Monmouth @ Monmouth Battlefield | Manalapan Township | New Jersey | United States

The reenactment of the Battle of Monmouth is an annual event at the park in late June. When you visit, you will pass enlisted men cleaning their weapons or idle away their time, and watch the women of the army cook, mend, and wash. You may encounter a drum major drilling his musicians or a court martial. At the parade ground, watch soldiers drill or artillerists fire their cannon. But we must alert you to keep an eye on your children, or the recruiting sergeant may have them drilling with wooden muskets!

Protect the Barnegat Bay-Little Egg Harbor Estuary @ The Tuckerton Seaport & Bayments Museum
Aug 15 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Protect the Barnegat Bay-Little Egg Harbor Estuary @ The Tuckerton Seaport & Bayments Museum | Tuckerton | New Jersey | United States

The Barnegat Bay-Little Egg Harbor estuary is under threat. Suburban sprawl and over-development prompted the Governor of New Jersey in 2010 to direct the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to research and develop a protection plan for the Ocean County bay. Citizens from the region, recreational users, commercial fisherman, activists, scientists, and land developers all shared their experiences with the NJDEP to develop a research strategy towards formulating new regulatory policies and a management plan for protecting the bay. This session explores how the research impacted the protection and stewardship planning. Issues of concern to the environmental regulatory agencies and the public include: nuisance jellyfish blooms, excess nutrients, the imminent closure of the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant on the bay, the benefits of marine conservation zones, and the status of the fish, crab and shellfish populations. Noteworthy is the collection of these data before and after Superstorm Sandy came ashore at BB-LEH, and its impact on the shallow bay. This program is part of the NJ Council for the Humanities Public Scholars Project. Event is free with a museum admission.

Phoenix Productions Presents: 1776 @ Count Basie Theatre
Oct 12 @ 12:00 pm
Phoenix Productions Presents: 1776 @ Count Basie Theatre

1776 will remind us all of the world our forefathers envisioned when they created this nation. With music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards and a book by Peter Stone, 1776 is a compelling story breathing fresh life into the events surrounding the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The story follows historical figures John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson as they attempt to convince the members of the Second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence. 1776 is an entertaining and educational experience for the whole family!
