Rockin’ hike explores geology

Do you know what rock besides flint was used by Native Americans to make tools? Or whether moss grows on limestone or sandstone? Find the answers to these questions and more during this informative walk along the Tekening Trails from 1:30-3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, at PPL’s Martins Creek Environmental Preserve.

Join Roxanne Kaiser-Antonowich, a geology enthusiast and science teacher with Belvidere School District in New Jersey, as she explains how the Wisconsin Glacier and other geological events shaped the local environment.

This program is free and will meet at the Cedars Pavilion. For directions to this event, click here.

The Martins Creek Environmental Preserve, in conjunction with PPL’s Martins Creek and Lower Mount Bethel Energy power plants, offers 215 acres of woodlands and meadows for hiking and exploring and boasts five miles of trails with views of the middle Delaware River, which has been designated by Congress as a Wild and Scenic River.
