The Catskills, A Geological Guide

Robert and Johanna Titus Present The Catskills, A Geological Guide Sept 15 at Claverack Library

Did you know that the Catskill Mountains were a great petrified delta? Did you know that the world’s oldest known fossil forest ecology is found right here in our mountains? Have you gone fossil hunting in the Catskills?  Geology is America’s favorite science. As children we commonly develop a keen interest in this science of dinosaurs and volcanoes, glaciers and earthquakes, and given encouragement, we never give up that fascination. Here is the story of continental collisions, lost mountain ranges, and primitive fossil creatures lost in an ancient sea.

Join Robert and Johanna Titus on Saturday, September 15th at 4:00 PM at the Claverack Library, and learn about the Catskills distant geological history. They will transport you 400 million years into the past. We will be visiting the Catskills when they were very different from the land of Rip Van Winkle that we know today.

Robert and Johanna are well known throughout the Catskills and Hudson Valley for their many newspaper and magazine articles and their several books, all about Catskills geological history. They will answer your questions, identify your specimens and sign copies of their new book The Catskills, A Geologic Guide, 4th expanded edition.

The Claverack Library is located at 629 State Route 23B. Bring your questions (and your rocks); stay for refreshments.
