Join us in welcoming Scott Spoolman as he talks about his book Wisconsin State Parks:Extraordinary Stories of Geology and Natural History.
Author and former DNR journalist Scott Spoolman takes readers with him to twenty-eight parks, forests, and natural areas where evidence of the state’s striking geologic and natural history are on display. In an accessible storytelling style, Spoolman sheds light on the volcanoes that poured deep layers of lava rock over a vast area in the northwest, the glacial masses that flattened and molded the landscape of northern and eastern Wisconsin, mountain ranges that rose up and wore away over hundreds of millions of years, and many other bedrock-shaping phenomena. These stories connect geologic processes to the current landscape, as well as to the evolution of flora and fauna and development of human settlement and activities, for a deeper understanding of our state’s natural history. Here stories about Kohler-Andre State Park and other area parks and natural areas.
The 2019 dates are March 5, 12, 19, and 26. The talks begin at 6:30 and are held at the museum. Coffee, water and a light snack will be offered.
