Jim Amon to address D&R Canal Watch on Sunday
June 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Jim Amon, the executive director of the Delaware & Raritan Canal Commission for 29 years, will address the annual meeting of the D&R Canal Watch, 2 p.m. Sunday, June 9.
Mr. Amon will present his spectacular photos of flora and fauna in the park and the Sourlands.
The meeting, free and open to the public, will be held in the mule tenders barracks on the Griggstown Causeway, Franklin Township. The barracks building is adjacent to the canal towpath, with a Garmin GPS address of 4 Griggstown Causeway, Princeton. Parking is available along the causeway.
Mr. Amon was the first executive director of the Canal Commission, beginning in 1974 when the canal became a state park. He is credited with transforming the neglected canal to the treasured linear park that it is today. After retiring from the commission, he became director of stewardship of the D&R Greenway, an organization he helped to found in 1989. He is retired from that post.
Light refreshments will be served.
The nonprofit D&R Canal Watch helps promote, enhance and preserve the Delaware & Raritan Canal State Park.
