April 10-Author talk on the History of New Jersey State Parks
April 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Please join us on Wednesday, April 10th during National Library week to hear about the History of New Jersey’s State Parks. The talk is with author and photographer Kevin Woyce from noon to 1 p.m. in the Level 2 Reading Room.
Some of New Jersey’s most exciting history can be found in our more than two dozen state parks. Some park names remind us of our Lenape heritage, others remind us we were the “Crossroads of the American Revolution” and those with abandoned forges still speak of our first great industry. From the top of New Jersey’s highest mountain to our last undeveloped beaches, discover the stories of our parks: who called them home in the past, what happened in and around them, and how and why they were preserved for generations of visitors.
Please feel free to join us at this free event. All are welcome. RSVP is appreciated to Cindy Warrick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-278-2640 ext. 172.
