Folks,

This October I’m giving a talk in Mays Landing for the Atlantic County Park System, with a repeat in Cape May for NJ Audubon.

Stories of the Jersey Devil and Beyond

Local natural historian Mark Demitroff grew up on a western Atlantic County poultry farm. There he enjoyed hearing tales told by neighbors, farmhands, and family members about odd happenings in the piney woods and dense swamps behind Milmay. Mark will spin a few yarns about ghosts, demons, and darksome fathomless pools with sinister qualities. Several traditional stories were passed down from the speaker’s Ukrainian heritage. Folklore, once an everyday form of entertainment, has lost its former importance but fortunately is not quite forgotten.
