Flat Rock Brook is proud to present this program in partnership with Hackensack RiverKeeper and SUEZ. In 1974, fossil remains of a mastodon were discovered and collected at a site now under the Oradell reservoir. These extinct relatives of elephants roamed forests that covered our area as the Ice Ages ended some 10,000 years ago. Join Dr. Mike Passow to find out about how this ancient ‘Bergen County resident’ lived, died, was buried, and brought back to the surface. Dr. Mike is a 46-year career Science Educator and Flat Rock Brook Nature Association Trustee. He was one of the volunteers who worked with paleontologists from the American Museum of Natural History to excavate and retrieve the mastodon’s bones.
