A chance to explore the Driftless’ Karst Geology

PRAIRIE DU CHIEN - Where do springs come from?  Where do sinkholes go?  What do these features mean in our landscape?  For the answers to these questions and a much more, join the Crawford Stewardship Project in partnership with the Prairie du Chien Memorial Library for an educational adventure centered on the local karst geology.

The karst presentation will be on Saturday, July 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Prairie du Chien City Hall, located at 214 E Blackhawk Avenue.
     This presentation and field trip will give the community a glimpse of some of the karst features present throughout the Driftless Area. It will also provide a sneak peek at some of the cutting-edge citizen science spearheaded in the last year by Crawford Stewardship Project mapping sinkholes and groundwater susceptibility.

We will start off the day with a presentation by Professor Emeritus Kelvin Rodolfo.

Then, we’ll move on to dig through Phil ‘Rockman’ Burgess’ impressive collection of stones and fossils.

After that we’ll get outside to see three nearby sites with notable karst features in the landscape.

Light refreshments will be provided at this free and open event. These are always a great time for all ages, so bring your whole family!
