Caring for the coast for over 60 years.
Since 1961, the American Littoral Society has been caring for the coast in New Jersey, New York and beyond. We see the beauty and feel the energy that draws people to coastal communities. We work to protect and restore that splendor.
We are excited to announce our Littorally Local Sunset Cruise, the Society's fall fundraiser to care for the coast on Friday, September 16 in Atlantic Highlands. The fourth annual event will include dockside cocktails and appetizers from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm onboard Teal Cruises' Festiva and then a sunset cruise on Sandy Hook Bay from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm.
Please consider donating a product or service to the auction, sponsoring, or underwriting the event to support the Society’s efforts to care for the coast! The online auction will take place from Friday, September 9, to Saturday, September 17, and culminate at the event.
Your donation supports a safe and healthy coast for marine life and humans alike; education for people of all ages and backgrounds; and advocacy for public access to the coast, natural solutions to the effects of climate change, and responsible environmental policy at the local, state, and national levels.
