The Sourland Conservancy, a Hopewell-based non-profit organization whose stated mission is to “protect, promote and preserve the unique character of the Sourland Mountain region” announces the release of a book of photos and essays entitled “Seeing the Sourlands” by Jim Amon.
Amon has enlightened and entertained Sourland Conservancy’s members since 2015 with his essays and photographs. Recently, Amon donated some of his work to the Sourland Conservancy to publish a beautiful, high quality, coffee table book of photos and essays. All proceeds from the sale of the book will support the Conservancy’s work to protect and preserve the history and ecology of the Sourland Mountain region. The Conservancy is honored and very grateful to be the beneficiary of Jim’s talent and deep love for the Sourlands.
