| No Comments
Tomorrow night is the premiere screening of NJN's hour-long documentary, "Rescuing a River: The Raritan"narrarated by actor Avery Brooks, hosted by Edison Wetlands Association, Rutgers University, Wild New Jersey and Bayshore Recycling.  It will be held on Tuesday, June 14, 2011 at 6:45 PM at the Metuchen Forum Theatre, located at 314 Main Street, Metuchen, New Jersey 08840.

A dramatic reading and book signing for the popular new book, "Wild New Jersey: Nature Adventures in the Garden State" by author David Wheeler and special guests will precede the screening, while a Question & Answer session with NJN film producer Eric Schultz and EWA Executive Director Robert Spiegel will directly follow the film screening. The film, likely NJN's last as a film studio, and is part of an incredible trend of renewed focus on the Raritan River. 

This documentary film traces the incredible transformation of the Raritan River - the longest river solely in New Jersey - from a toxic witches' brew into a wildlife sanctuary beloved to fishermen, crabbers, and boaters. This incredible documentary will show the importance of the Raritan River - New Jersey's Queen of Rivers - highlighting EWA's work over the last 20 years to remediate and restore it.  Where once smokestacks lined the shores, spewing poisonous clouds into the sky, now bald eagles, peregrine falcons and ospreys soar above. 

Doors will open at 6 PM, and the show will start at 6:45 PM.

Admission is free, but seats are limited & filling up fast!  Please RSVP by June 11th to EWA at 732-321-1300 or email to order your ticket.
