Event Details

 

The Musconetcong watershed has been a great place to live for the last 13,000 years.  The watershed’s water, land, and habitat resources made it a great place to be when the glaciers of the last ice age retreated and are what make it a great place for farming and outdoor recreation today.  Hear about the history of northwestern New Jersey from the setting of the former Hoffman Grist Mill, a restoration project of the Musconetcong Watershed Association that has been gaining steam over the last couple of years.  Located in the Asbury Historic District, it is home to some notable American trends that happened a bit earlier than elsewhere – the early agro-industrial revolution, the Second Great Awakening, and transportation technology innovation.  Alan Hunt, PhD, and Executive Director of the Musconetcong Watershed Association will talk about how history of place links with modern-day caring for place, and the linkage between the Association’s ongoing ecological, historical and conservation education efforts.  Main Branch County Library, Route 12.  7 pm.  Free with free refreshments.
