Sunday, April 17th from 2:00 - 2:30 PM at the Biomedical and Physical Sciences Building, Room 1415

Take a virtual tour through Michigan’s geologic history, from its fiery beginnings marked by volcanoes in the Upper Peninsula, through eons of inundation by a shallow, tropical sea, to the shaping of our modern landscape by glaciers during the last ice age.  Learn what a Petoskey stone tells us about Michigan’s ancient environment and the easiest way to tell a mammoth from a mastodon. Suitable for all ages.
