Our Mission Statement drives our Programs and Events
Navesink Maritime Heritage Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to engaging Eastern Monmouth County with maritime and water related historical, skill building, environmental, and recreational activities, and encouraging responsible use of the Navesink estuary through its Discover, Engage, and Sustain approach.
Our Programs and Events reflect our Mission. We DISCOVER matters of interest, we ENGAGE our Members, Friends, and the Community, in these interests, and we SUSTAIN our efforts in our core mission.
Our long-running River Rangers program, our sponsorship and support of Sea Scout Ship 5, and our regular Community Canoe Building, public presentations, and other activities demonstrate our ability to sustain core activities.
We have also developed and run one-off major maritime events such as the celebration of the 350th Anniversary of the Founding of Monmouth County and the "Guns Blazing! The War of 1812 and the New Jersey Shore" Art Show at the historic Twin Lights lighthouse in conjunction with others.
