Event Type

Did you know a Raritan River tributary flows below the Wallace House & Old Dutch Parsonage? Centuries of piping, culverting and development have hidden the vast majority of waterways in urban areas. This program will help community members explore their own local landscapes by learning to read topographic maps, identify watersheds and #lookfortheriver. Dr. Heather Fenyk, founder and president of the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership, leads this presentation.

This program is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities with additional support from the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage Association.
