Saturday, December 8 Talk

Next Saturday, December 8, I'll be giving a talk at the annual meeting of the Century House Historical Society at the Rosendale Community Center (directions).  It starts at 1:00 pm, it's free, and all are welcome.

Here's the description...


While many people know that the Rosendale area was once famous for its natural cement, fewer realize that this geologic resource was due to a unique set of environmental conditions which existed a little over 400 million years ago.

Join SUNY Ulster geology professor
Steven Schimmrich as he discusses how we know that our area was once dominated by Himalayan-sized mountains, erupting chains of volcanic islands, and shallow subtropical seas and how these conditions formed the sedimentary rocks and structures we see in our backyards today.
