About the Event

The picturesque Wild Hudson Valley Eco Camp reveals to the trained eye a picture of a complex geological past. The cliff rising above the Jan de Bakker Kill displays a small cross section of a 380-million-year-old delta that once spread across all of today’s Catskill region – the Catskill Delta. There are river channel and floodplain deposits high up in the cliff face. Across Catskill Creek lies a flat landscape that is now Wild Hudson Valley's forest farm. It also was once the floor of an ice age lake. Jan de Bakker Creek flowed into that lake and deposited the sediments of another, much smaller delta. On this walk, led by the  Dr Robert Titus, we will travel into all of these past moments.

About our Guide: Dr. Robert Titus is retired professor of geology at Hartwick College.  He is a paleontologist by training and has done a great deal of professional research on the fossil record of New York State.  He and his wife Johanna co-wrote the books The Hudson Valley in the Ice Age and The Catskills: A Geological Guide, 3rd Edition.
