Our newest exhibit, “The Geology of the Ten Mile River Scout Camps,” is representative of the entire Upper Delaware River Valley. It includes a video, “Upper Delaware River Resource Mapping” from a presentation that New York State Museum and Geological Survey Scientist and Mapping Geologist James Leone delivered to the Upper Delaware Council on Jan. 7, 2021, which summarized the findings of a contractual project with the National Park Service to take samples and map the geological features of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River valley on the New York side.

Museum personnel will be there to answer visitors’ questions. The museum will follow all COVID-19 safety protocols, as outlined in the “Summer Camp 2021 FAQ - TMR Scout Camps” guide to keep its staff and visitors safe.

It is expected that Museum Co-Director Glenn Pontier will host talks on local history.  Talks will be announced on our website and social media feeds.
