Rock River Archaeological Society
Hosts David Mickelson at
November 18th Meeting

The Rock River Archeological Society will be hosting David Mickelson at the meeting on November 18th at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center, located at N7725 Hwy 28, Horicon, Wisconsin. The program is free and open to the public with refreshments served after the presentation.

David Mickelson is Professor Emeritus and Senior Scientist in the Department of Geoscience at the University of Wisconsin. In this talk David will describe how Wisconsin's landscape came to be what it is today. Southwestern Wisconsin, known as the Driftless Area, was never glaciated and its deep valleys and narrow ridges result from millions of years of stream erosion. At times in the past, glaciers have covered more than two thirds of Wisconsin and the area covered by the last glaciation exhibits excellent examples of glacial topography.

David M. Mickelson is Emeritus Professor of Geoscience, Geological Engineering, and Water Resources Management at UW-Madison. He has taught glacial geology, intro to geomorphology, coastal geomorphology, air photo interpretation and geology of National Parks at Wisconsin since 1971. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Ice Age Trail Alliance since 2010. He is the first author of the book Geology of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, which was published by the University of Wisconsin Press in 2011.

The public is welcome at this Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015 program which begins at
7:00 p.m. The talk is being held in the lower Auditorium and can be accessed by the lower door on the south side of the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center. For further information please call Julie Flemming, president, at 920-928-6094 or email  julieflemming@yahoo.com
