Talk on Barnegat Bay Estuary Planned June 20 at Barnegat Library

Jun 12, 2017

Barnegat Bay is a national ecological treasure. Home to an amazing diversity of wildlife, it is a favorite destination for both locals and visitors. Head down to the bay and chances are you will see someone enjoying such activities as boating, fishing, crabbing, clamming and birding.

Learn how scientists assess the state of this valuable estuary and how we are all partners in its protection at a program on Tuesday, June 20, at 6:30 p.m. at the Barnegat branch of the Ocean County Library. Presenting the program is Karen Walzer, public outreach coordinator for the Barnegat Bay Partnership, the national estuary program for the Barnegat Bay.

Walzer received a B.S. in biology from Bucknell University and earned New Jersey teacher certificates in both biology and general science. She is also licensed as a N.J. registered environmental health specialist.

She began her career working for the N.J. Department of Environmental Protection as an environmental specialist. Her experience included enforcement of land use laws and assessment of biological impacts of projects. More recently, Walzer monitored water quality for the Monmouth County Health Department as an environmental health specialist and worked for the New Jersey Forest Resource Education Center as a seasonal naturalist.
