May 7-Author talk with Jim Wright on the High Mountain Preserve

On Tuesday, May 7, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Level 2 Reading Room, the New Jersey State Library will present a talk with Jim Wright on New Jersey’s High Mountain Park Preserve. The talk will include nature shots, aerial photography and archival images. As a bonus, Wright will talk about the secretive Wild Turduckens that live near the summit.

The High Mountain Park Preserve is one of the largest tracts of forested land in New Jersey’s Piedmont Region. With great views of Manhattan, the 1,260-acre preserve, located in Passaic County, offers great spots to hike and enjoy nature.

Author/photographer Jim Wright has written four coffee table books, Jungle of the Maya, Hawk Mountain, In the Presence of Nature, and The Nature of the Meadowlands. For the past 10 years, Jim has written “The Bird Watcher” column for The Bergen Record. He has also written an interactive e-book about Duke Farms’ Bald Eagles and three nature-oriented e-books. In his spare time, Wright also serves as deputy marsh warden of the Celery Farm Natural Area and maintains a nature blog for that area. His photography appears regularly in publications including nature calendars and on nature blogs. Additionally, he serves on the board of the New Jersey chapter of the Nature Conservancy.

Please feel free to join us at this free event. All are welcome. RSVP is appreciated to Cindy Warrick at cwarrick@njstatelib.org or 609-278-2640 ext. 172.
