The Paleo and Archaic Indians of New Jersey at Washington Crossing State Park in Titusville, February 3, 2019

On Sunday, February 3, at 1:30 p.m., join the Nature Center at Washington Crossing State Park in Titusville. Jim Wade, former archivist and researcher with the New Jersey State Museum, will take participants on a journey back to the time of the last ice age, when the earliest Native American peoples entered what is now New Jersey. Discover how these Paleo-Indians lived and survived in an arctic landscape filled with strange, prehistoric fur-covered animals, like the woolly mammoth, great elk, and musk oxen – Learn how these earliest people adapted to their harsh environment and hunted with specialized Clovis spear points – See how these prehistoric hunters opened the way for new bands of Archaic peoples who followed, with new innovative stone tools and lifestyles. The program will include a slide presentation and Native American artifacts will be on display.

In the event of inclement weather, some programs might be canceled.  It is always advisable to call ahead before coming out.  Phone: (609) 737-0609
