Exploring the Geology of the Abbott Marshlands

February 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Geology and Hydrogeology of the Abbott Marshland is the result of nearly 100,000,000 years of deposition and erosion. A short introductory lecture by Pierre Lacombe, retired USGS hydrogeologist, will cover central New Jersey Geology during the age of dinosaurs; followed by a geologic walk to explore exposures of the marshland’s sediment of clay, silt, sand, and pebbles, and various stream bed features in nearby Watson Woods.   This is the first of a two part series.  The second session meets on March 19th for a visit to the Bordentown Bluffs.

Program is free but registration is required.   Register here.
