Fossils and Sharks’ Teeth in Holmdel

Did you know that Holmdel was once part of an inland sea during the last ice age? This is why you can still find sharks’ teeth in the Ramanessin Brook, across from the Village School. On June 17, Friends of Holmdel Open Space will sponsor a fossil walk along and in the brook. The walk will be guided by a fossil expert from Poricy Park in Middletown. You just might go home with some sharks’ teeth! Meet at the Village School parking lot, 67 McCampbell Road in Holmdel, at 10:00 a.m. Wear clothes and shoes that can get wet and bring strainers for sifting. Kids must be accompanied by an adult. Event will be held rain or shine.  For any questions, call (732) 671-9196 or email
