Fire, Water, and Ice: Michigan’s Geological Story

Join this virtual talk with Danita Brandt, Associate Professor and MSU Museum Research Adjunct!

Dr. Brandt will lead 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.

This program is a part of MSU Science Festival.
