Have you read our #SeeingTheSourlands essay's by Jim Amon? Jim is a dear friend and naturalist of the Sourlands.
Jim has very generously donated over 50 of his essays to the Sourland Conservancy to publish in a beautiful, high quality, coffee-table-type 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.
Jim has enlightened and entertained Sourland Conservancy’s members since 2015 with his amazing essays and photographs. This wonderful gift is the culmination of many years of creativity and hard work! The Conservancy is honored and very grateful to be the beneficiary of Jim’s talent and deep love for the Sourlands.

Today is World Water Monitoring Day (there is truly a day for everything!). We are grateful for our volunteers who this past weekend in collaboration with @theh2oshed and @njwatermonitoringandstandards attended STREAM school. STREAM School is an intensive weekend-long study in how to collect data on and evaluate the health of a stream, benthic macro invertebrates and its riparian habitat.
The Sourland STREAM program is to ensure that the Sourland Mountain Streams are healthy. There are 19 headwater streams on Sourland Mountain which feed into the Delaware and Raritan watersheds, providing water for both New Jersey and Pennsylvania residents. It is imperative that these waters are monitored and protected to ensure clean water for all people and animals.
Thank you to our dedicated volunteers!
Sourland Stewards were out this morning clearing invasive plants from one of our restoration project. We might be small but we can be mighty with support of so many wonderful volunteers. Thanks to everyone who came out. Lots more opportunities coming this fall!
