Find out where the Indians of Central New Jersey would travel in search of the stone materials they needed for making their tools and weapons. Learn why some of the most abundant varieties of shale in the area were so extensively used by the Indians. A short presentation will be given at the Nature Center by long-time WCSP volunteer instructor, Jim Wade. Actual Indian stone tool artifacts, from Mr. Wade’s collection, will be shown. This will be followed by a short trail hike to one of the local shale deposits and outcrops and possibly other locations of interest in the park. Free.
