Event Description:
The Effects of Glaciers on Wisconsin Monday, March 26, 7-8 p.m. Verona sits near the edge of the last continental glacier in Wisconsin. Learn how glaciers shaped our state with Dr. Lucas Zoet, Assistant Professor at the UW-Madison Department of Geoscience, at the Verona Public Library on Monday, March 26, from 7 to 8 p.m. Glaciers are one of the earth’s most dynamic geologic features. Capable of significantly altering the landscape, they transport large amounts of ice and sediment over time. Dr. Zoet will discuss how the geologic remains of glaciers help us better understand the processes active in modern-day glaciers and how those processes shaped the state of Wisconsin. This presentation is part of March Mammoth, an exploration of the Ice Age world with special events for all ages at the Verona Public Library from March 1 through April 3. The March Mammoth exhibit features real and replica fossils, including life-size replicas of a giant woolly mammoth skull and a ferocious saber-toothed cat skeleton on display. The March Mammoth exhibit and presentations are the first events made possible and supported by the Verona Public Library Endowment Fund. All events are free and open to the public.
