Trenton Group Overview

The Trenton Group Overview highlights the respective collections of Charles Walcott and Tom Whiteley from the Trenton Falls area of New York, now reposited in the MCZ. This project examines the social history, geology, and paleontology of the area. The geologic setting and the sedimentary geology are addressed in detail, and the paleontology section includes descriptions and photographs of MCZ fossil specimens. The project website was initially created in 2004 and funded by an NSF grant to the MCZ Department of Invertebrate Paleontology.
