This program focuses on recent environmentalist poems by Daniel A. Harris. He encourages group involvement in the poems and their implications for our environment, the way we experience ourselves as part of the huge ecosystem thats now so threatened. How do we become (more) conscious of geological time as we walk through space? How do we understand our connectivity with landscape (a term that did not exist until the 17th century)? Daniel reads a poem aloud; we discuss, with ample opportunity for participant Q and A. And then we move on, through a sequence. You will all have copies of the poems, so you can choose to listen or read (or both)---not a common feature of poetry readings. No prior experience with poetry is expected or required.

Well probably take a fresh-air break in the middle so that we can stretch our legs---and eyes and ears afresh!

Age range: 14 and up

Join two of the top plant and animal ecologists in New Jersey and explore the first property that New Jersey Conservation Foundation helped preserve in 1960 - the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Bring your camera, binoculars and friends, and hike through these wild lands to see over 244 birds, mammals, reptiles, trees, and wildflowers that coexist in this special refuge which has limited access. This hike is rain or shine (except in the case of a governmental shut-down). Dogs are NOT allowed - we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
