Welcome to the launch of our Jersey-Friendly Yards
Municipal Certification Program!

In 2022, we are fortunate to be able to offer funding and guidance to two to three municipalities in the Barnegat Bay watershed seeking certification. The projects we fund will not only help your municipality move forward in the certification process, they will also serve as examples to inspire residents to take similar actions at home.
