Movie Night at Mariton: The Wilderness World of Sigurd F. Olsen
Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary | Sat, March 09, 2019, 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Join us for a screening of The Wilderness World of Sigurd F. Olsen, which portrays the life and spirit of a man who spent his career fighting for wilderness preservation. As a teacher, conservationist, and author, Olsen helped to create the Wilderness Act of 1964, protecting wild lands across the continent. This is a rescheduled event from last year, due to a snow cancellation. We’ll have popcorn and light refreshments.
Mariton is perched on the steep slopes of Bougher Hill overlooking the scenic Delaware River. A highlight of the preserve’s trail system is the River Lookout Trail, with an overlook of both the Delaware Canal and the Delaware River 300 feet below.
Mariton’s Nature Center includes a library, meeting space, and ADA restrooms, and is open by prior arrangement.
Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
