Atsion---Sister Village

 

Time & Place

1:00pm
HIstoric Batsto Village in Wharton State Forest

event thumbnail

Those attending the program will also view the video “Atsion: A Journey Back In Time” a short film created by Albert Horner, Pine Barrens photographer and Barbara Solem.

Barbara, a popular Pine Barrens speaker and resident of Shamong, NJ, is the author of The Forks: A Brief History of the Area, Ghost Towns and Other Quirky Places in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, and Batsto Village: Jewel of the Pines. She is a member of the Batsto Citizens Committee, Inc. and in season serves as a tour guide at the Atsion Mansion.

On the edge of Wharton State Forest in Shamong Township stands an elegant mansion that was once the summer home of Samuel Richards, a 19th century iron baron and the oldest son of William Richards, the iron master of Batsto Village. The fortunes of Batsto and Atsion were intertwined from the beginning. Both were founded by Charles Read in 1765 and later when new owners took the helm the two ironworks were linked in contentious court battles over timber, water, and ore rights. With the purchase of Atsion by Samuel Richards in 1819, relations between the two towns were once again amiable and mutually cooperative. During the later years when Joseph Wharton and his heirs owned Atsion and Batsto (from the late 1800s until the mid-1950s) both villages were considered part of the Wharton farm and operated in support of each other.

The program, held on the second Saturday of every month, focuses on the various natural, cultural, and historical aspects of this unique South Jersey region. The presentations last for approximately one hour. Admission is $2.00 per person and the facility is ADA accessible.

Movie Night at PPA

 

Time & Place

7:45 pm
Pinelands Preservation Alliance, 17 Pemberton Road, Southampton, NJ 08088

event thumbnail

Come join PPA for fun family nights as we show a select environmental/nature film. Chirping crickets and shooting stars will serve as our backdrop. Popcorn and refreshments provided.

YERT - Your Environmental Road Trip

Description:

YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip) is a groundbreaking adventure and a celebration of the American spirit in the face of adversity - a thought-provoking, inspiring, and sometimes hilarious, documentary about the courageous and creative individuals, groups, businesses and leaders of this country who are tackling the greatest environmental threats in history.

Called into action by the ever increasing threats of planetary catastrophe (from climate change to toxic pollution, from water scarcity to habitat destruction), three people upended their lives, pool their collective life-savings, and set off on a first-of-its-kind journey of discovery to personalize sustainability and to answer a critical question: ARE WE DOOMED?

With camera in hand, tongue in cheek, and packing their selves, supplies, and filmmaking equipment like sardines into a used hybrid car, the YERT team set out from the Rachel Carson Homestead in Pittsburgh, PA to document environmental sustainability in every state in the union in a single year. They wanted to find out: What can Americans do to save the planet? What are they already doing? Why aren't we all doing more? Is it possible that doing right by the planet is more economical, joyful, and fulfilling than not?

Cost: Free (donations greatly appreciated), bring your own chair!

In the event of rain this film will be screened indoors

FREE. Donations welcome.

Space is limited. Registration required. Contact 609 859-8860 x14 or tom@pinelandsalliance.org

Movie: "The Island President"

 

Time & Place

7:45pm
Pinelands Preservation Alliance, 17 Pemberton Road, Southampton Township, NJ 08088

event thumbnail

The Island President is the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced—the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. After bringing democracy to the Maldives after thirty years of despotic rule, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge. Considered the lowest lying country in the world, a rise of a mere three meters in sea level would inundate the 1200 islands of the Maldives, rendering the country practically unlivable. Unless dramatic changes are made by the larger countries of the world regarding climate change, the Maldives, like a modern Atlantis, will disappear under the waves.

The Island President captures Nasheed’s first year of office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, where the film provides a rare glimpse of the political horse-trading that goes on at such a top-level global assembly. Nasheed is unusually candid about revealing his strategies—leveraging the Maldives’ underdog position as a tiny country, harnessing the power of media, and overcoming deadlocks through an appeal to unity with other developing nations. When hope fades for a written accord to be signed, Nasheed makes a stirring speech which salvages an agreement. Despite the modest size of his country, Mohamed Nasheed has become one of the leading international voices for urgent action on climate change.

Cost: Free (donations greatly appreciated). Bring your chair.

The movie will be shown indoors if there is a possibility of rain.

Registration is required: Call 609-859-8860 ext 14 or email tomdunn@pinelandsalliance.org.
