MACGES was founded in Manasquan, N.J. in May 1999 to be a non-commercial, non-governmental organization that would advance geographic and environmental knowledge about the area surrounding the Middle Atlantic Bight. The main effort now is to continue with an ad hoc effort to educate local officials and the public about coastal zone issues affecting the N.J. Shore (especially in Monmouth and Ocean Counties).
