What’s in a Name? Names from Nature
September 24 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Andrew Anderson, a historian at the NJDEP Division of Parks and Forestry, presents this Discovering Barnegat Bay activity! The cold, clear waters of Cedar Creek once provided raw material and power for two Pinelands industries at the uniquely named hamlet of Double Trouble. Utilizing colonial era survey maps, historic pictures and the “What’s in a Name? Names from Nature” section of the Barnegat Bay Environmental Educators Steering Committee’s Discovering Barnegat Bay guide, we’ll see how names of waterways and land in the Barnegat Bay Watershed give perspective to how settlers viewed or utilized the resources of this area.
This webinar will be streamed at the Pinelands Commission YouTube channel, where the archived video will be posted for later viewing.
