A Rock in the Park

When: Sat., May 23, 1:30 p.m. 2015

This field trip, led by Rebecca Jamieson, will introduce you to the bedrock geology of Point Pleasant Park. Rebecca will lead participants through the stratigraphy, starting at Black Rock Beach and working clockwise along the shoreline towards Chain Rock, and from there uphill to Martello Tower and Quarry Pond. Notable features include sedimentary layering, glacial striations and the effects of contact metamorphism. Meet in the container pier parking lot.
