About the Edelman Fossil Park of Rowan University:

In a thin, six-inch bone bed on the site of a former marl pit, Dr. Kenneth Lacovara is leading research at the Jean & Ric Edelman Fossil Park of Rowan University in Mantua Township, New Jersey.  While scientists conduct research at the park, the site is an educational center for people of all ages—seniors, students, teachers, and college students—interested in experiencing the thrill of hands-on science exploration.
