The Palisades - Monday, April 28

The Palisades are a line of steep cliffs that stretch along the Hudson in northeastern New Jersey and into New York. In 1524, Italian explorer Giovanni da Verazzano described these cliffs as "a fence of stakes," or "Palisades" (from the French). Join popular lecturer Kevin Woyce for a colorful tour of one of New Jersey's most impressive landmarks, from its formation and discovery, through the American Revolution and to the creation of Palisades Interstate Park. Explore history along the park's major trails, from abandoned riverfront beaches and ferry landings to a vanished clifftop workd of mansions and grand hotels. We'll also visit Fort Lee (did you know it was the home of the silent movie industry?) and Palisades Amusement Park.

Check out the library's Pinterest board at for interesting pictures, maps, and tidbits about the history of the Palisades!

Backyard Birds

Can you identify a cardinal by its color? By its song? By the shape of its head? Can you tell the difference between a starling and a grackle? Amateur naturalists aged 10 and up will enjoy this program about the birds we find in our backyards, bird behavior and some practical birding tips. Spring is a great time to learn about backyard bird songs and calls, because this is the breeding season and they are very active. Join naturalists from the Somerset County Park Commission for this educational, fun and free program.
