Tuesday, May 6, 2008 at 7 p.m. at SRAC, 345 Broad St. Waverly, NY

It is not uncommon when hiking in local conservation lands, town forests, and state parks in northeastern United States to discover old stone cairns and stones piles. It is estimated that there over 100,000 just in New England alone. Who built them, when, and why? Ted Keir, local archaeologist and historian will take us back in time with a slide presentation and lecture on "Stone Piles." Keir has studied Stone Piles for a great many years. This is one of the great mysteries in both New York State and Pennsylvania. Doors open to the lecture area at 6pm, presentation runs 6:30 - 7:30pm. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for SRAC members and children. Refreshments will be available.
