Program: Hazel England, director of education and outreach for the Great Swamp Watershed Association presented "Saved But not Yet Safe – The Ongoing Battle to save the Great Swamp".

Hazel England of the Great Swamp Watershed Association was welcomed to the September 25 Kiwanis Luncheon by Kiwanis President-Elect John Eyre. Hazel gave an interesting and entertaining presentation on the Great Swamp of New Jersey.

She started her illustrated talk with a primer on the subject of New Jersey’s Great Swamp, including ancient geologic history and recent steps taken to save it from being used for a huge airport. She went on to explain that there are continuing issues to be addressed so that this valuable resource, which serves as a pure water source for the Passaic River, will serve the area now and in the future.

Her presentation closed with a Q and A session followed by an enthusiastic round of applause. To learn more about the Great Swamp Watershed Association, please visit their website.
