Serendipity: John McPhee’s The Pine Barrens
October 1 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Great writers influence others to do great things. John McPhee’s The Pine Barrens moved Governor Brendan Byrne to introduce legislation to preserve and protect the Pinelands. John Volpa, Director of Education for Pinelands Adventures, will focus upon each of McPhee’s nine chapters, which condensed a story about the land and its people with wider implications for the nation and the environmental movement. The Pine Barrens is a microcosm for many environmental concerns and this program will also cover these ideas; it’s all about the water!; creating balance between human needs and ecosystem needs; and how visionary action can make a difference.
This webinar will be livestreamed at the Pinelands Commission’s YouTube channel, where the archived video will be posted for later viewing.
