Barnegat Resident Will Discuss Pinelands

The recently-published book, Discovering New Jersey's Pine Barrens serves as a guide to an assortment of historical sites

Local tour guide and author of Discovering New Jersey’s Pine Barrens Barnegat resident Cathy Antener, will lecture tonight on the Pinelands at the Barnegat Branch of the Ocean County Library from 6 to 8 p.m.

Antener's book, published earlier this year, serves as a guide to a vast assortment of historical sites, museums, events, festivals and even local restaurants and wineries located in the Pinelands, conveniently grouped together by location. She will discuss some of these sites at the library lecture.

“I’m often asked, ‘Where do I go to see the Pine Barrens,’ ‘How do I get there,’ ‘Where are the ghost towns,’ and even ‘Where does the Jersey Devil live?’” said Antener, who also owns the website, www.PineyPower.com. “When The History Press approached me to write this book, it seemed like the right thing to do.”

 Antener will also be signing books on October 13 at The Pine Barrens Jamboree at Wells Mills Park in Waretown. 

The book, which retails at $19.99 plus tax, can also be purchased at The Tuckerton Seaport, Noyes Museum in Oceanville, Batsto Village Gift Shop, Buzby’s Chatsworth General Store, Pinelands Preservation Alliance in Pemberton, and other locations, as well as through Amazon.comBarnes and Noble.com and The History Press. It is also available as an e-book (Kindle, Nook, etc.) 

Antener said with so many popular Pineland-related festivities coming up in October, including the Chatsworth Cranberry Festival on October 20th and 21st; the Batsto Country Living Fair on October 21st at Historic Batsto Village; and dozens of other hikes, canoe trips, talks and walks, it is a good time to pick up a guide to the all the wonders this area offers.

When we first came to the area and the weather was cloudy or was too hot we visited all the area places ... from Cape May to areas North Manahawkin ... it is too bad that all the development to make Manahawkin and so many other towns into what we ran from ??? Cutting down such beautiful tree stands that have known to control our environment and water aquifers ... storms that plaque so many developments ... don't you just love all those dumb storm basins that turn from what many kids call a pond or lake ... and as they turn into silt dumps that are not maintained by anyone ... the huge big city problems that follow ALL FOR MAKING SHOPPING CONVENIENT??? I guess I have been here TOO LONG ... VOTE INDEPENDENT AND DUMP THE OC-GOP THIS NOVEMBER THE OC-GOP HAS OWNED & OPERATED OCEAN FOR ALL THESE YEARS ... BARNEGAT BAY HAS SENT US A MESSAGE ... BEST WITH YOUR BOOK WILL BE ADDING IT TO MY LIBRARY ... MY PASSIONATE "ALL-CAPS SHOUTING"

Interesting observation ... most of my family moved to Cherry Hill in the late 50's and early 60's when it had so many apple farms that you would smell them when exiting Exit 4 of the Turnpike ... the massive development commercial buildings, food chains sprawl like no one ever expected all approved by those who were elected ... those same developers like a plaque found their way to Toms River and Stafford - Manahawkin ... signage calling for more to come and destroy our once lovely place ... no one wants those quaint villages even if it just meant making the buildings conform to a standard ... to put up a style that is common in a "city" or like the Short Hills Mall and all it's glitz ... check out what is controlled in New England areas ... not much different that this area ... just different planning ... don't blame the environmentalists of the frogs or snakes ... blame the snakes that sit on the council with the voting power and laws to control it's their choice as much as it is this NOVEMBER 6TH.?
