Ever wonder why geologists claim a shallow, tropical sea once covered Rosendale? Or what kinds of fossils you can discover in this area? Why the rocks on the Snyder Estate are especially suited for use as a natural hydraulic cement? Join SUNY Ulster County Community College geology professor and Century House Board of Trustees member Steven Schimmrich for a leisurely walk to the Widow Jane Mine where he will discuss the fascinating geology of this area, point out the location of some interesting fossils, and teach you how the rocks allow geologists to visualize ancient seas teeming with life.
