We are excited to show our Ross Lake Journal for the month of September! Written by Carin Sharp, this journal details the parks transition into the fall, the different people we have met at the park, and their stories. We encourage & welcome everyone to come and enjoy the beauty of the park while the weather gets cooler!
The parks address is: 19 Elinore Avenue, Long Branch NJ. We hope to see new/ returning visitors at the park & if anyone takes any pictures of the park send it to us on instagram @whalepondwatershednj to have your picture featured on our account!

Please join us for a free expert panel discussion on how stormwater pollution and flooding affects the health of local water bodies. The event is being hosted by the Whale Pond Brook Watershed Association in partnership with Clean Ocean Action, the Long Branch Green Team, the Monmouth University Urban Coast Institute, and the New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club.
Sophie Glovier, municipal policy specialist for the Watershed Institute, will discuss steps residents can take to combat stormwater runoff pollution in their towns.
Dr. Jason Adolf, Monmouth University endowed associate professor in marine science, will share observations from current research on the linkages between rainfall and microbial pollution at surfing beaches near outflow pipes and storm drains in Asbury Park, Deal and Long Branch.
