Brimming with gorgeous photography and rich stories on the tales of nature within the Sourlands, this new book by beloved naturalist and photographer, Jim Amon, illustrates how much we have to learn from nature and all its inspiration. Each section- plants, animals, and principles- engages and encourages readers to observe the mystery and beauty of the natural world around them, with the potential to learn a fun fact or three! Whether you are an avid naturalist yourself or new to enjoying the beauty of the natural world, you’ll find endless inspiration and enjoyment in Seeing the Sourlands. Presentation, Q&A, and opportunity to purchase the book (all sales benefit the Sourland Conservancy).
Plans are underway for the Princeton Battlefield Society’s early morning, premier educational event in celebration of the January 3rd anniversary of the Battle of Princeton.
On December 29 we will begin our program at the Historical Society of Princeton’s Updike Farm (The Barn) at approximately 9:00 am with a “discover the ten crucial days of 1776-77” presentation by Larry Kidder, historian and author of TEN CRUCIAL DAYS: Washington’s Vision for Victory Unfolds. With limited parking at Updike Farm, shuttle service will be available from the Battlefield State Park to the Farm. Free hot drinks will be available at the Updike Farm and the Battlefield.
Following Mr. Kidder’s presentation, attendees will either take the shuttle back to the Battlefield State Park or march with Continental soldiers to the Clarke farms along the lane used in 1777.
At the battlefield, Mr. Kidder will discuss the actual Battle of Princeton, with British and American reenactors, including artillery, as background. The British and American reenactors are organized and led by Paul Loane of the 43rd Regiment of Foot and by Tom Bowen.
We invite you to experience, first-hand, the culmination of the Ten Crucial Days at Princeton that helped change American Revolutionary War history.
