Glacial Geology of the Schoharie Creek Valley

Lecture from 1:00pm-2:00pm: Join Robert and Johanna Titus for a lecture on the glacial geology of the Schoharie Creek Valley. During the middle of the Ice Age, there was an advance of the ice that flooded the Schoharie Creek Valley. One mass of ice invaded from the east through Kaaterskill Clove, the other through Middleburgh. When all this ice melted away, a host of ice age landscape features were left behind.
(Optional) Pratt Rock Hike from 2:15pm-4:00pm: Our hike up nearby Pratt Rock will allow us to see typical ice age features of the glaciation of the Schoharie Creek Valley. The ledge at the top of Pratt Rock has been planed off and striated by the passage of the ice. The valley below was once the floor of Glacial Lake Grand Gorge. Following the lecture at the Zadock Pratt Museum, hike participants will carpool to Pratt Rock. The hike is limited to 15 registered attendees. In the event of rain or other inclement weather, the hike will be postponed until Saturday, May 18th. This is an outdoor hike, so attendees should dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear.

Registration required by Thursday, May 9, 2019. This event is space limited. For registration assistance, e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 518-622-3620.
