A Visit to Franklin Parker Preserve – The Heart of the New Jersey Pine Barrens
November 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
No fee, registration required
Registration Deadline: October 27
The 1.1 million acres of the New Jersey Pine Barrens is an unusually beautiful place. There are no majestic mountains, dramatic gorges, giant waterfalls or expansive vistas. It is a flat, sandy coastal plain populated with forests of scraggly little Pitch Pine trees. Yet the Pine Barrens is a place of overwhelming beauty. Hidden in its forests, on its lakes, rivers, and savannahs are landscapes that are constantly changing and a delight to the eye.
The Franklin Parker Preserve is the New Jersey Conservation Foundation’s largest property, with over 10,000 acres located in the heart of the Pine Barrens. This diverse landscape includes pitch pine forests, cedar swamps, bogs, blueberry fields, and some of the tributaries for the Wading River.
“The Franklin Parker Preserve is a rare New Jersey treasure with a combination of forest and open land that creates stunning views of the Pine Barrens.” – Richard Lewis
Richard Lewis has been a professional and fine art photographer since the 1970’s. His earliest exposure to art came from the great landscape painters. Because of that influence, he calls his photographic style “Painting with a Camera,” which involves equal effort in both creating the original digital photograph and in post processing.
Richard is an active blogger and speaker. His work has appeared in print, on the web, and is in several corporate and private art collections. Over the years he has participated in group and individual exhibitions and has been honored with numerous awards and recognition.
