Wisconsin Book Festival – Wisconsin State Parks (Scott Spoolman)

Saturday10/174:00 pm - 4:50 pm

This Wisconsin Book Festival author event is presented in partnership with the Wisconsin Science Festival and will be held at the Discovery Building.

Wisconsin State Parks takes a dramatic and historic look at northwestern Wisconsin’s volcanoes, at the glacial masses that flattened and molded northern Wisconsin, at mountain ranges that rose up and wore away over hundreds of millions of years, and at many other bedrock-shaping phenomena. These stories connect geologic processes to the current landscape, as well as to the evolution of flora and fauna and development of human settlement and activities, for a deeper understanding of our state’s natural history.
