Joint Meeting of NE-AIPG and LIAPG

  • 14 May 2015
  • 1:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Orchard Beach, Bronx, NY

The Northeast Section of AIPG (NE-AIPG) and Long Island Association of Professional Geologists (LIAPG) invites all members and their guests to attend the 2015 Spring Meeting at Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx, NY. The highlight of this meeting is a guided trip to Orchard Beach to observe various outcrops of metamorphic rocks. Pelham Bay Park is New York City's largest park, more than three times the size of Central Park. The 115-acre park includes miles of paths and trails, Orchard Beach, the Bartow-Pell mansion, golf courses and a 13-mile shoreline bordering Long Island Sound. It also features a diverse range of plant and animal life and is a prime location to observe birds like osprey. Some of the area’s geologic history is displayed in the outcrops of metamorphic rock found just to the north. Drs. Nicholas Coch and Patrick Brock from Queens College will lead the tour.

Following the tour, please join us for a joint meeting with the LIAPG at Austin's Steak & Ale House, 82-70 Austin Street, Kew Gardens, New York. There will be a joint social hour before dinner, followed by an after-dinner presentation by Dr. Coch. The evening presentation will focus on the vulnerability of Long Island to hurricanes and the associated impacts.
