Glaciers, Soils, and Forests – They’re All Related

March 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$5.00
Forest Soil

Glaciers have shaped almost all of Michigan’s landscape. Most of our lakes, hills and soils are a direct result of the action of ice that covered our state from about 30,000 years ago until it finally left, about 10,000 years ago.

In this talk, Dr. Randy Schaetzl, a Geography/Geology professor at MSU, will discuss the glacial history of NW Lower Michigan, and explain how just about everything we see and use today has linkages to glacial ice. Soils are his specialty, so expect to also hear how glacial sediment and soils are interrelated, and how those soils have led to vastly different forest productivities across the mitten. Bring your landscape-related
questions!

Price: $5/person in advance (by March 1st), $10/person at the door.
For more information or to register, contact District Forester Kama Ross at 231-256-9783 or kama.ross@macd.org.
