Bass River State Forest presents a lecture, “Native Americans of New Jersey,” by Monmouth University Professor Richard Veit on Saturday, July 22, at 8 p.m. at the Lake Absegami breezeway pavilion.

This well-illustrated presentation provides an introduction to the Lenape, New Jersey’s Native Americans, starting with their precursors who arrived in the state 12,000 years ago and continuing to the present day. Using data from art, archaeology, folklore, and history, it examines their lives and their impact on the state.

Insect repellent, a flashlight and something to sit on are recommended. The venue is ADA accessible. The program is free, but donations to the Bass River State Forest Interpretive Program are welcome. This is part of the 2017 “Lectures at the Lake” series. Lightning storms cancel.

For a 2017 summer program schedule or for more information, contact the Forest Office at 609-296-1114 or njparksandforests.org. —P.J.
