Nature Conservancy Announces ‘Love Letters to the Jersey Shore’ Sweepstakes

Celebrate NJ’s Coast for a Chance to Win a Cape May Vacation Getaway

Driving on the Garden State Parkway, whizzing by shimmering blue bays and marshes dotted with wading birds. Making that turn east, maybe crossing a bridge, and passing a favorite ice cream parlor. The thrill of toes finally hitting soft, white sand. The Jersey Shore is what the memories are made of. And the Jersey Shore is made of… nature.

This summer, The Nature Conservancy in New Jersey invites you to celebrate our beloved coast and maybe win a vacation escape in the process. Visit and write your own love letter to the Jersey Shore (just a sentence or two will do), and you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win a fabulous two-day getaway in Cape May this fall.

Need inspiration? The Nature Conservancy made their own beautiful video love letter to the Jersey Shore you can also watch at The sweepstakes entry deadline is Sept. 3, 2017.

We all love the Jersey Shore. With a coast so beautiful and popular, though, we run the risk of loving it to death. More than half of the state’s population lives along the coast, and millions of people visit seasonally each year, creating a constant struggle to balance development with important conservation issues. Storms and changing weather patterns also take a toll.

The Nature Conservancy is helping New Jersey’s shore communities use nature to address challenges like flooding and erosion, by providing valuable planning tools and testing innovative restoration techniques like marsh enhancements and the state’s first oyster reef breakwater.

The Nature Conservancy is a global conservation organization dedicated to conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends. Guided by science, The Conservancy creates innovative, on-the-ground solutions to the world’s toughest challenges so that nature and people can thrive together. The Nature Conservancy has helped protect more than 55,000 acres of nature in New Jersey. To learn more, visit
