Orvis-Princeton is sponsoring a screening of A River Runs Through It in support of D&R Greenway Land Trust’s mission to protect land along rivers and streams. Orvis-Princeton will host a pre-movie orientation on The Art of Fly Fishing with a demonstration. Come for an opportunity to take home an Orvis Raffle give-away and store coupons. Sign-ups for free fly fishing classes will be available. 

A River Runs Through It is the story of an American family and follows two brothers and their father who find common ground in fly-fishing, despite their differences. The film won an Academy Award for Best Cinematography.

"It is beautifully filmed with scenes that inspire a love of nature,” says D&R Greenway President & CEO Linda Mead. “We are so thrilled that Orvis is partnering with us to help ensure our rivers and streams support a healthy habitat.  We look forward to continuing the partnership in the spring with additional programs."

D&R GREENWAY LAND TRUST IS IN ITS 28TH YEAR of preserving and protecting natural lands, farmlands and open spaces throughout central and southern New Jersey. Through continuous preservation and stewardship—caring for land and easements to ensure they remain protected and ecologically healthy in perpetuity—D&R Greenway nurtures a healthier and more diverse environment for people and wild species in seven counties. Accredited by the national Land Trust Accreditation Commission, D&R Greenway’s mission is to preserve and care for land and inspire a conservation ethic, now and for the future. Since its founding in 1989, D&R Greenway has permanently preserved more than 20,000 acres, an area 20 times the size of New York City’s Central Park, including 30 miles of trails open to the public.

The Johnson Education Center, a circa 1900 restored barn at One Preservation Place, Princeton, is D&R Greenway’s home. Through programs, art exhibits and related lectures, D&R Greenway inspires greater public commitment to safeguarding land.
