TNN: The Sourlands with Jim Amon; Sept.17

Thursday, September 17 7:00 pm
Thursday, September 17 8:00 pm


Nature is full of miracles:

  • Leaves “eat” air, mix it with water and produce life-sustaining food.
  • Water striders can scurry across the surface of the water without sinking or even getting wet.
  • Seeds contain an embryo, nourishment for the embryo to grow until photosynthesis takes over and they come protected in a shell.  They are “a baby in a box with its lunch.”

Naturalist and award-winning photographer Jim Amon will make a presentation that examines these and other wonders and surprises about nature on September 17th.  His presentation will be based upon his monthly essays and newly published book SEEING THE SOURLANDS.  He will include many of his nature photographs.

A self-taught naturalist and stellar photographer, Jim Amon spent 29 years cultivating his love and interest in the Sourlands while he was the Executive Director of Delaware and Raritan Canal Commission, where he developed an abandoned waterway into our state’s most visited park, and after that 10 years as Director of Stewardship for D&R Greenway Land Trust, working to restore nature preserves. Jim also served as a Sourland Conservancy board member, volunteer and hike leader for several years.
