TapTalk: Jasper Mines of Vera Cruz and the History of Watershed Uses

August 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This retrospective Tap Talk will begin at Jasper Park where Neil Moser and John Fegely from the Upper Milford Historical Society will introduce us to a history of the Lenape people who inhabited this area for ten of thousands of years prior to the arrival of Europeans. We will tour the jasper pits and learn more about this highly valued mineral and its important role to indigenous people’s trade, not only in the local area, but across the country!

Then it’s off to Rising River Brewery for the second part of this Tap Talk where Penn State Extension Water minuteResources Educator, Brad Kunsman, will discuss indigenous, colonial, and present day uses along waterways. We’ll round out the Tap Talk with a discussion of practices that we can all use to protect clean water in our communities.
