Badger Talk: David Mickelson – Geology of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail

Wednesday10/186:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Southwestern Wisconsin, the Driftless Area, was never glaciated and its deep valleys and narrow ridges result from millions of years of stream erosion. About 25,000 years ago glaciers covered more than two thirds of what is now Wisconsin, creating the glacial landforms we see today. The 1000-mile trail across Wisconsin highlights many of these Ice Age features.

Join us at the New Berlin Public Library for a Badger Talk that will explain the formation of moraines, kettles, outwash plains, drumlins, eskers and tunnel channels using slides of modern glaciers as well as many photos and maps from Wisconsin.
