6 - 9pm North County Branch Library, 65 Halstead St., Clinton, NJ

(R) CHANGING LANDSCAPES OF RURAL HUNTERDON
As part of a special reception for the "Rural Landscapes: Four Views" show at the North County Library, join Raritan Township Historian Peter Kinsella for a special lecture on the Changing Landscape of Rural Hunterdon.  This lecture explores how our county, vastly rural for nearly 300 years, changed quickly with suburban development from the late 1970s until recently.   And yet, so much of our landscape remains in agriculture, open space and preservation.  In the most congested state in America, Hunterdon County's 50,000+ acres of preserved land are interjected with subdivisions, towns and hamlets.   Rather than mourning the loss of our agricultural acres, Pete celebrates what survives, thrives and gives Hunterdon residents such a high quality of life.
Free.  Reservations Required.
North Branch of the County Library, Clinton
7pm to 9pm
