2021 Annual Report

Our 2021 Annual Report was produced in an effort to share the success stories of the District. It represents the beginning of what we hope is an ongoing “Conservation Conversation” that will not only benefit the valuable natural resources of our county and region, but also the people that live and work in our local communities. In this year’s Annual Report we have shared a snapshot of the District – our staff, our partners, our programs and our projects. We hope that you will find our story of interest and we welcome your comments and input. The District looks forward to 2022 and the ongoing opportunity to do our part in protecting the resources of Ocean County.
