Eric Nelsen of The Palisades Interstate Park will describe “The Unknown Palisades.”  Through images and narrative, the story of the Palisades is brought to life.

Among the topics covered are the villages that once dotted the shores; the palatial estates that rose on the summit; the epic struggle of the New Jersey Women’s Clubs and others to preserve the cliffs from defacement by massive stone quarries; the bathing beaches and other facilities that ran at full-tilt during the early decades of the twentieth century; the work of the New Deal agencies in the park during the Great Depression; and the oasis that the park has become in today’s busy world.  

Space is limited, admission is free, reservations are required.
