This NJN (New Jersey Network) film explores the portions of Cape May, Cumberland, and Salem Counties that constitute the Delsea Region of the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail Route. Quaint villages, extensive salt marshes and winding tidal creeks, vegetable farms and fruit orchards, and occupations such as fishing, glass blowing, and boat building all combine to create the distinctive cultural landscape of South Jersey along the Delaware Bay.
The half-hour “Down Jersey” film evolved from a special study of the region by the National Park Service that looked at the 300-year history of the interrelationships between man and nature.

Connie Jost (1951-1998)
This 9-minute film about Connie Jost was co-produced by CU Maurice River and NJN as a tribute to this local artist. Connie’s work was greatly influenced by the marine resources of our area; despite its whimsical nature it carried a serious environmental message about the state of marine conservation. A member of CU Maurice River, when she passed away after a battle with cancer the group decided to create a memorial scholarship in her honor. The program seeks to identify, each year, a young individual who is interested in the environment and wishes to pursue a career in the arts. To read more about Connie click here.
