Earth, Wind and Ice: Ancient Climate Change

Geologist and adjunct professor at Stockton University, Mark Demitroff gives a fascinating talk on how the last Ice Age fashioned our Pinelands terrain and produced their natural oddities: rare orchids, carnivorous plants, spungs, savannahs, blue holes and dunes. Learn how these landforms influenced the people and agriculture.

Saturday, July 14 from 2 to 4 PM in the Giffordtown Schoolhouse Museum, 35 Leitz Blvd., Little Egg Harbor, NJ.

It is the newest version of the introductory primer into the Pine Barrens Ice Age inheritance. Biodiverstity is dependent upon geodiversity.

Manumuskin,

You are right, at least in the modern sense. Strong natural springs were once called blue holes too, the best known being the Inskeeps (Inkskips) and Mt. Misery Blue Holes. Their former hydraulic head has dropped, likely because of aquifer over-withdrawal.
