Running Silver with Dr. John Waldman, June 19th
Hear noted author John Waldman talk about his new book Running Silver: Restoring Atlantic Rivers and Their Great Fish Migrations and the special fish of the Delaware River and Bay.
One of the many things that makes the Delaware River and Estuary so special is the home it provides to a variety of fish, turtles and terrapins, oysters and other important species.
Join us on June 19th at the Cherry Hill Public Library to learn why these fish populations are so important and get inspired to take action to better protect them! The event is free, but there will be books for purchase.

The Nature Conservancy’s Green blog called Running Silver “a brilliant and heartbreaking book” and former U.S. Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt wrote that Running Silver is “A great read and important blueprint for action.” John will be signing copies of the book afterwards.
In addition, following the presentation, there will be a panel discussion on three industrial facilities that are using outdated technology which is causing the needless deaths of over 3 Billion Delaware River fish a year. Come learn why the Delaware City Refinery, the Salem Nuclear Generating Station, and the PSEG Mercer Power Plant, are having this massive impact, what can be done to stop it.
Panelists will include:
Maya van Rossum, the Delaware Riverkeeper, Delaware Riverkeeper Network
Amy Roe, PhD., Conservation Chair of the Delaware Sierra Club
Jeff Tittel, Director, NJ Sierra Club
