SOMERS POINT _ The Patcong Creek Foundation will hold its first public event in its new Seashore Science Center, which is the former Somers Point Youth Center in Lawrence 'Bud' Kern Park.
On Oct. 30, retired New Jersey Fish & Wildlife Biologist Tom Baum will speak about marine wildlife of the Great Egg Harbor estuary at the foundation's Community Night.
The foundation hosts Community Nights to provide education about the natural world in and around Patcong Creek.
The nonprofit group recently leased the building from the city.
The foundation is also looking for volunteers to help with its annual clean up of the Tuckahoe-Corbin City Wildlife Management Area off of Route 50 in Corbin City the morning of Oct. 28.
The group cleans along the impoundment road, where there is very little traffic, so is good for kids. Gloves, pickers, and trash bags will be provided.
