Spend the morning learning about glacial kames and kettles, and other depositional landforms of the Telemark Forest Preserve with Northland College Professor of Geoscience Tom Fitz. We’ll examine the soils that have developed following the retreat of the glaciers, and we’ll see how the landscape’s geologic past influences the ecosystems of today. Be prepared to hike a few miles including some hills. Depending on recent weather, there may be some muddy low spots and mosquitoes/flies.
This event is part of Wisconsin Land Trust Days which celebrates the protection of Wisconsin’s land, water, and wildlife — the work of over 40 Wisconsin land trusts. Wisconsin’s land trusts are dedicated to protecting Wisconsin’s unique character and providing places for people and wildlife to flourish. Wisconsin Land Trust Days offer you the perfect opportunity to discover and explore the special natural places in your community. Wisconsin Land Trust Days takes place in August and September of each year.
