VIRTUAL- New Jersey State Parks
Some of New Jersey's most exciting history can be found in our 50 state parks, state forests and recreation areas. The parks have been open for outdoor enthusiasts through the summer, and fall is also a great time to view the parks in all their autumnal splendor!
Join us for this virtual talk and slideshow by presenter Kevin Woyce that will introduce you to New Jersey Parks, some that are well known and some that are hidden gems.
Old names such as Wawayanda and Hopatcong remind us of the Lenni Lenape, or "Original People." Historic battlefields recall New Jersey's perilous years as "the Crossroads of the American Revolution." Abandoned forges still speak of our first great industry, and we can trace the beginnings of our transportation network in the paths of the Morris and the Delaware & Raritan Canals.
The slide show includes original photographs of many of New Jersey's beautiful state parks, plus vintage maps and images of historic people, places, and events.
Kevin Woyce is an author, photographer, and lecturer. His regional history books, illustrated with original black and white photography, include: Jersey Shore History & Facts, Niagara: The Falls and the River, and Santa’s Hometown.
This program is open to all. Registration is required.
Registered attendees will be emailed information on how to connect to the Zoom chat room the day before the event.
