Geology at Kinderhook Creek Preserve

Date: Saturday, July 13, 2019 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Naturalist Series

Part of our Rensselaer Naturalist Series! Bill Kelly, retired New York State Geologist, will lead us on an approximately 1.5 mile walk to discuss the rocks and landforms of the Preserve, which is located on an outlier of the Rensselaer Plateau.  He will outline the geologic history of the Taconic Mountains and how the rocks of the Preserve fit into that history.    We will walk on trails that are in part quite steep so good boots with non-slip soles are important. 

Meet at the parking lot of the Kinderhook Creek Preserve in East Nassau.

Register in advance here. Questions? Contact David Gaskell at donation of $5.

Resources for this outing are listed below and can also be found here along with learning goals.
