Amon, a Lambertville, N.J., resident and founder with three others of the D&R Greenway Land Trust, served as Director of Stewardship for the D&R Greenway, after 30 years as Executive Director of the Delaware and Raritan Canal Commission.
Upon retiring from the Greenway, Amon served on the board of directors for the Sourland Conservancy.
For the last five years, the Conservancy has been publishing “Seeing the Sourlands,” Amon’s monthly photo essays on the plants and animals that can be found in the Sourlands, as an eNewsletter feature. They also can be found at sourland.org. The photos and essays will soon be published as a book.
Amon studied at the Maine Media Workshop and took several classes elsewhere. His work has been published in many local newspapers, magazines and planning books. He has exhibited at the Perkins Art Center, the Phillips Mill Photography Exhibit, Gallery 14, and other venues in central New Jersey.
