Of the residents of the Lower Raritan Watershed there are many naturalists and individuals with a wealth of knowledge about the special ecosystem we call home. “Voices of the Watershed” is our community blog, a place for watershed residents to document (through photos and posts) stories and observations of the watershed.
Current Contributors to the LRWP Voices of the Watershed Blog:
Joe Sapia – “Pine Barrens Around Helmetta”
Joe Mish – “Nature on the Raritan, Hidden in Plain View”
Maya Fenyk – “Threatened and Endangered Species of the Watershed”
Alison M. Jones – “Images of the Lower Raritan Watershed”
We invite guest bloggers to submit posts for our community blog to share their love of the watershed. We are especially interested in stories and posts that:
• Capture a sense of direct engagement with the landscape (e.g. campouts, childhood adventures in the woods, learning to identify species, learning about medicinal or nutrition properties of certain plants, wayfinding using nature)
• Document species that may no longer have a significant presence in the area (e.g. recollection of bird songs, deer paths or endangered species sightings)
• Document species currently observed, and that capture anecdotes regarding these species (e.g. recipes for squirrel, venison or tea made from sassafras)
• Capture a sense of changes in human engagement with the watershed over time
