The Project

This project was created by Thea Boodhoo and Dr. Kenneth Lacovara of Rowan University in an effort to organize information on the known taxa of the Hornerstown formation found at the Edelman Fossil Park in Mantua Township, New Jersey.  To forward the creators’ shared goal of public science outreach, extra care was taken to make this website interesting and easy to use for enthusiasts of all ages, as well as scientists studying the fossils.
