GENERAL MEETING: “The Unknown Palisades: A Slideshow through Time”—Tue, July 29 at 7:30 PM at Closter Nature Center, 154 Ruckman Road, Closter, NJ 07624. Currently the New Jersey Palisades are the frequent subject of media coverage, because of the controversial plan of LG Corporation to build a towering office building over them. Efforts are still underway to stop this degradation. Learn about the history and natural wonders of the Palisades at this informative presentation. Through images and narrative, historical interpreter Eric Nelsen brings the story of the Palisades to life: from fishermen’s villages to palatial estates, the epic struggle to preserve the ancient cliffs, and the thriving beaches and campgrounds of the Deession and New Deal era. This event will be cosponsored with the Closter Nature Center. Light refreshments served. Free and open to the public.
