On the Sourland Ridge with Poet Jane McKinley

January 11 @ 7:00 pm

The Sourland Conservancy series, “Talk of the Sourlands,” is returning for 2024! On Thursday, January 11 at 7pm at the Titusville First Presbyterian Church, join poet Jane Mckinley as she reads from her sequence of poems inspired by walks in the Sourland Nature Preserve. The sequence covers a single year, beginning the day before Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey. The poems are rooted in trees and boulders and depict the Sourland landscape through the seasons, including the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, heavy fog in January, tulip trees, the profusion of wildflowers in April, the summer solstice, and hickory nuts. Photographs of the Sourland Preserve will accompany the reading. McKinley is known for her close observation of the natural world.

Seating is limited, but a hybrid model will be implemented, allowing participants to join from the comfort of their own homes.

Admission to all talks is free, but registration is required. Donations are always greatly appreciated. Membership support and donations provide the resources for the Sourland Conservancy to create educational events like this.
