Online Adventure: Serendipity – John McPhee’s The Pine Barrens
April 9, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm$10.00
In order to continue operations during this time, Pinelands Adventures has developed a series of Online Adventures to bring New Jersey’s Pine Barrens to you with their most popular programs! These interactive programs last about an hour each. You’ll need to be ready to learn and have fun with a good internet connection.
Great writers influence others to do great things. John McPhee’s The Pine Barrens moved Governor Brendan Byrne to introduce legislation to preserve and protect the Pinelands.
We’ll focus upon each of McPhee’s nine chapters which condensed a story about the land and its people, with wider implications for the nation and the environmental movement. Adapted from our popular bus tour which is based on McPhee’s landmark book, this program was originally developed for the 2020 Pinelands Short Course. It was sold out when the annual conference was canceled due to the pandemic.
