History Speaks In Marathon: The Ice Ages in Wisconsin

What role did the Ice Ages play in shaping Wisconsin topography? When was the last cycle of Wisconsin glaciation?

 

Find out the answers to these and other questions when the Marathon County Historical Society and the Continuing Education office of UW-Marathon County present “The Ice Ages in Wisconsin” at 6:30 pm Wednesday, September 20, 2017, at the Marathon Village Hall, 311 Walnut Street, Marathon City. This presentation is part of the Marathon County Historical Society’s “History Speaks In Your Town” series.

 

In this presentation, Dr. Keith Montgomery will outline the Ice Age in Wisconsin and its effects on our landscape and resources. He will also discuss Ice Ages in general, including the causes of such climates. Montgomery will explore what we can learn today from these ancient climate shifts.

 

Dr. Keith Montgomery is a Professor of Geography and Geology and is Regional Executive Officer and Dean at UW-Marathon County.

 

His talk is free and open to the public. All donations are appreciated. Registration is not required.

 

After the talk, the Marathon Heritage Center will be open, where visitors can learn more about local history.
