Wednesday, February 20, 2019
Geology has a strong influence where and how our society develops however, few people are aware of the importance of this connection. In eastern Wisconsin, the Niagara Escarpment provides a noteworthy example of this cause and effect. From defining the shape of the Great Lakes to making a home for the Green Bay Packers, the escarpment has been instrumental in the direction of eastern Wisconsin’s historical and economic development and more recently it’s geotourism.
