Journey Back to Nature
The documentary, Petty’s Island: A Journey Back to Nature will be presented tonight, October 1st, from 7:00 - 8:45 p.m. at Pennsauken Library. This 22-minute film highlights the history of the Island, from its first inhabitants, to the environmental transformation currently taking place. Petty’s Island is a piece of land situated on the Delaware River between Philadelphia and Camden - but technically a part of Pennsauken Township. For over 100 years, this Island was owned by Citgo and utilized for industrial purposes. In the early 2000’s, however, a bald eagle nest was found on the Island, forever changing its fate.The goal of the film is to inform others about the rich history of this land, and the educational and recreational activities that will soon be available to all, especially local residents.
