Learn About Offshore Wind in New Jersey at Jacques Cousteau Reserve

By JULIET KASZAS-HOCH | Jun 05, 2019

Tuckerton — The Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve in Tuckerton hosts periodic “Ecological Evenings” as a way to bring area residents together with scientists and professionals who are current on coastal issues and science research. On Tuesday, June 11, Elisabeth-Anne Treseder, New England deputy lead at renewable energy company Orsted, will give a presentation from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on offshore wind in New Jersey.

“New Jersey will soon host some of the first offshore wind farms in the United States,” the JCNERR explains. “Come learn more about offshore wind and the specific projects planned in and around New Jersey from experts in the field.”

And, “experience an offshore wind farm through virtual reality technology!”

Ecological Evening programs are free, but registration is required. Register via phone by calling Kaitlin at 609-812-0649, extension 206, or by email at gannon@marine.rutgers.edu.

The JCNERR is one of the 28 national estuarine reserves created to promote the responsible use and management of the nation’s estuaries through a program combining scientific research, education and stewardship. The reserve’s Education Center is located at 130 Great Bay Blvd. in Tuckerton.
