Petty’s Island: A Journey Back to Nature

January 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Petty’s Island is a piece of land situated on the Delaware River between Camden and Philadelphia (but technically a part of Pennsauken Township).  For over 100 years, this Island was owned by Citgo and utilized for industrial purposes.  In the early 2000’s, however, a bald eagle nest was found on the Island, forever changing its fate.  Taylor Melodick-Robinson, from the Alliance for Watershed Education, will be showing the documentary, Petty’s Island: A journey Back to Nature, is a 22-minute film highlighting the history of Petty’s Island, from its first inhabitants, to the environmental transformation currently taking place.  Following the documentary, there will be a Q & A.

Taylor Melodick-Robinson is currently a Fellow for the Alliance for Watershed Education.  Through her position, she is focusing on environmental outreach and education.  In addition, she is a Rutgers-Camden alumni, and is currently pursuing her master’s in Sustainability Science and Management at Montclair State University.
