Geology of the Hudson Valley

July 24, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Join environmental educator, Kim Fendrich, on a journey through time at Rockefeller State Park Preserve.

Learn about the geologic history of this area and observe evidence of tectonic activity, glaciation, weathering, and erosion throughout the Preserve. We’ll begin with a demonstration to put Earth’s 4.5 billion year history into perspective, followed by discussion and then a short hike to get up-close and personal with some rocks along the Sleepy Hollow trail. We’ll walk about 2 miles in total.

Meet in the Visitor’s Center courtyard. Please wear sun protection and bring water to drink.

Rain date: TBD.
