Sea Girt Conservancy hosts community event


SEA GIRT — The Sea Girt Conservancy brought the community together for a fun afternoon of fall activities at Edgemere Park on Saturday, Oct. 24.

The event featured pony rides, a petting zoo and pumpkin painting as well as small group informational sessions from the American Littoral Society, according to Mike Meixsell, vice chair of the Sea Girt Conservancy.

“I think the attendance was great, people enjoyed it and we had good feedback. We hope to do something like it again next year,” Mr. Meixsell said.


Mr. Meixsell said the goal of the event was to bring attention to the Conservancy and what the group hopes to accomplish in Edgemere Park, while also offering a fun outing for the community.

Two habitat technicians from the American Littoral Society also attended the event and hosted informational discussions about the possibility of an outdoor classroom in the park as well as the Wreck Pond watershed project.
