Manasquan Boro, Monmouth County, New Jersey
Realizing that Fisherman’s Cove was the last remaining open coastal area in
the County, the Monmouth Conservation Foundation (MCF) moved quickly to assist in the purchase of the 65 acres
bordering the Manasquan Inlet. Once State, County and local officials recognized
that the property was worthy of preservation and protection a coalition was
formed to assure its conservation. The Monmouth County Board of Freeholders took
ownership of the property for use as a conservation area in July of 1995.
Utilization of the property will include nature trails and programs, pedestrian
access to the river, and observation blinds on the river.
