PRESS RELEASE
SEEGER SERIES CONTINUES
 
In this, the 100th year celebration of Pete Seeger’s birth, numerous commemorative events will grace NJ, NY, and Hudson Valley stages.
Authorized by the Seeger family, one such premier event will appear in Rutherford, NJ on March 30. The “Pete and Toshi Seeger Wetlands Preservation Series” hosts its eleventh concert and expo --- presented, fittingly, by Hackensack Riverkeeper, stalwart environmental activist group.
 
Preceded by a proactive environmental expo featuring information booths by important regional earth associations, Uncle Floyd/John Dull and Friends will concertize in Rutherford’s RCC Hall.
 Rumor has it that at the event you will be able to personally meet a screech owl at booths, and you will certainly be able to walk away with pertinent environmental info, giveaways, and an inspired wake-up call by Riverkeeper, NJ Sierra, and Friends.

The Story of the Pete and Toshi Seeger Wetlands Preservation Concert Series
 
On the inspiration of Pete and Toshi Seeger, the Wetlands Preservation Concert Series continues.
 
When the Seegers eyed expansive wetlands during travels on the NJ Pike, it occurred to them how fragile these beautiful meadows and other wetlands in the northeast are and how they are in need of our awareness and aggressive protection.
 
Much work has already been done in NJ wetland areas. This series will provide environmental expo lobby displays which highlight some of that work, and will give awards to proactive groups and individuals for outstanding environmental progress in wetland areas.
 
Focused awareness information, however, still needs to be disseminated about remaining untarnished and semi-tarnished meadow areas. These areas are in pronounced need of protection.
 
This string of concerts, kicked off by Pete and Friends in November 2010, will have as its goal - -- awareness proliferation surrounding the wonderful opportunities, and beauties that lie in our wetlands. The series will encourage proactive involvement.
 
Between concerts, visit the trails of DeKorte Park (Lyndhurst, NJ), or take a pontoon boat tour of the Hackensack River. You may see a bald Eagle or 2, an egret, or some beautiful treasure that will remind us of the need to protect these strange and wonderful habitats for future generations.
******************
 
 
This acoustic series is storied – Seeger himself concertized 3 times for its environmental platform (his last concert ever in NJ was part of the series); folk mentors, Tom Paxton; John McCutcheon; Tony Trischka and scores of regional musicians have graced its stage. Environmental awards have been bestowed on artists; activists and organizations for their accomplishments in meadowland protection.  Concerts include tabled displays by several environmental groups.
