Wetlands Institute Adding Mainland Campus

Posted August 29th 2022

The Wetlands Institute has purchased a 1.2-acre property along Route 9 in Middle Township, to be known as The Mainland Campus. The property includes a four-bedroom house, parking, storage, and a fully fenced yard. It will primarily be used for office space and housing for seasonal employees and summer interns.

“It’s an exciting time for the Institute,” said Executive Director Dr. Lenore Tedesco. “We’ve added new people and new expertise to our full-time staff, and once we complete the permitting process and some needed renovations, this new property will help us meet our future needs for intern space and secure storage.”

Expansion of office space at the existing Wetlands campus has taken over the previously existing dorm space, and the new building will allow for an expansion of internship opportunities for those who don’t live in the immediate vicinity of Seven Mile Beach.

The expanded property is also, in some ways, a preventive step, given the increasing concerns about rising sea levels across the Jersey Shore: The Wetlands staff plans to move some computing facilities and records to the new site at the mainland.

But fear not, the main Wetlands campus isn’t going anywhere. The existing building has stood along Stone Harbor Boulevard for 50 years and the Institute will continue to educate visitors and beachgoers about our marsh and its creatures.
