Ecotour at County Park this Friday, September 2nd will feature Truth or Consequences - a visual statement illuminating the lasting effect of man's encroachment on nature by artist Karen Stone

(Gibbstown, NJ) - Gloucester County Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney and Freeholder Frank J. DiMarco announced today that an Ecotour has been scheduled for this Friday at 10 am at Greenwich Lake Park in Gibbstown.

Residents of all ages can join the County's Naturalist Jill Taylor for her "PARKS ECOTOUR" where they will take a walk through Greenwich Lake Park to learn about the natural features of the park and see Karen Stone's work of art reminding us of our responsibility to our natural environment.

The "TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES" installment will be available for viewing until mid September. This art installment also features work by the Art in the Park program that was held during this summer for young artists. Karen Stone received a grant fellowship from the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation to initiate the program TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES as the theme for the ART IN THE PARK program. Karen Stone, an adjunct Associate Professor at Drexel University, is a teaching artist that provides the groundwork for mainstream students to acquire the critical thinking skills necessary to translate their personal vision into works of art. Students who participated in the workshop were guided by Ms. Stone to explore the site and understand the lasting effects of man's encroachment on nature. The participants created site-specific multimedia installations that allude to the complex natural history of the park and comment on man's impact on the environment at Greenwich Lake Park.
