SAVE THE SOURLANDS SOLO FEST is a musical and educational celebration of the beauty and importance of New Jersey’s Sourland Mountain region, a vital 90-square mile natural area facing an invasive insect that will kill 1 million ash trees. New Jersey musicians entertain us amid stunning landscapes, as naturalists explain the importance of the Sourlands as a source of water, a wildlife habitat, and as a defense against climate change. Join us afterward for a panel discussion of local naturalists and artists about the importance of the Sourlands and how we can save it. The event moderator, Laurie Cleveland, joined the Sourland Conservancy in 2015 to help fight the PennEast pipeline. An active member of the community, Laurie works to partner with local, regional and national organizations to implement education, advocacy and stewardship initiatives to Save the Sourlands. She currently serves on the Advisory Board of the Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum. In her spare time, Laurie enjoys photography, reading, gardening and exploring the Sourland trails.
