“The Sourlands”


People who live in New York City, the Rockies, Napa Valley, even the New Jersey Pine Barrens, know they live someplace special. Someplace where people say: “It must be great living there!” We live in, or near, a special place too; it’s just not that well known. It’s called the Sourlands. If you don’t know about it, it’s a great time for an introduction to this New Jersey treasure. This documentary has been produced by the Sourland Conservancy for local viewers to get new insights and spark a desire to learn more about this beautiful place.

The Sourlands: A New Jersey Treasure premiered at the Off-Broadstreet Theater in Hopewell, NJ. A couple hundred people gathered to check out the film over a delicious dessert and coffee. The audience reaction was great!


After a very insightful question & answer session with the film’s interviewees, Carol Heffler performed a few songs including the film’s original title track “Refuge” written specifically for the documentary. Thanks to everyone who came out to show their support!
