Make some time on Thursday October 4th at 7 pm to catch a movie that will show you how global environmental issues can also be local issues and how people are working to make a difference here in New Jersey.
“Sourlands – Stories from the Fight for Sustainability” is Jared Flesher’s new documentary, which talks about global environmental issues through a local problem with New Jersey’s own Sourland. The Sourland Mountain region is home to the largest remaining forest in central New Jersey, it also serves as an important wildlife habitat and water resources.
Jared Flesher, Sourlands director and an award-winning journalist, explains how the film connects with locals through the natural environment.
“The documentary tells the story of this green oasis from the perspective of its remarkable citizens – including biologists, farmers, hunters, engineers, and entrepreneurs – all fighting in their own ways to sustain the Sourlands and all it represents.”
The screening of the film will be accompanied by a Q&A with the filmmaker. Due to the rising popularity of the film, seating is limited. Register in advance at www.sourland.org. A small contribution of $20 is requested. The proceeds will benefit the local non-profit organization The Sourland Planning Council (SPC), which works to protect the ecological integrity, historical resources and special character of the Sourland Mountain region through advocacy and education.
The showing of the film will take place in the antique barn at Cashel, the home of SPC’s vice president, 145 Wertsville Rd. in Hillsborough.
Light refreshments will be served at 7pm and the film will begin at 7:30 pm, so make sure to register and arrive early for a refreshment and enjoy the enlightening film.
