We are especially giddy here because, well, folks, we’ve made it.
Less than 50 more days until the unofficial start of summer.
The glorious four days that are…
Memorial Day Weekend.
There is so much to be excited about here on LBI.
The sandbar – the shops, restaurants, and other places of interest, have begun to come alive.
There is a hum – an energy – a swell that has built.
And yet more and more things to do and see and experience.
So, on this week before Easter – a beloved Spring break respite for some…
Check out our highlighted happenings this weekend on the sandbar:

Saturday, April 8:
Science Saturday at LBIF: The American Oyster in the Barnegat Bay. Matthew Gregg presents the program, which begins at 11 a.m. Oyster hamlets were once littered along the mid-Atlantic coast. Hamlets turned to villages, villages turned to towns, towns turned to cities; the mighty oyster that built it all. The botany of desire proved to be lethal. A victim of its own success, oyster stocks collapsed and with it, a way of life. Matthew will discuss digging up legacy and sharing it with a society poised for its return. Program is free for LBIF members, a $5 donation is requested for non-members. Breakfast treats are provided by Little Bite of Italy.
