    7:30 pm at Affeldt Auditorium - 1309 Centennial Hall, UWL
    Lecture

    Ice Age Trail talk MickelsonDavid Mickelson, Ph.D., is a glacial geologist from the UW-Madison and the co-author of the book “Geology of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.” About 25,000 years ago glaciers covered more than two thirds of what is now Wisconsin, creating the glacial landforms encountered across much of the state. The 1000-mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail highlights many of these Ice Age features as it winds its way through Wisconsin. This talk will explain the formation of moraines, kettles, outwash plains, lake plains, drumlins, eskers and tunnel channels using images of modern glaciers as well as many photos and maps from Wisconsin.

    Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center and UWL Department of Archaeology & Anthropology are sponsors of this event.
