The Evening with Nature Series at the Kettle Moraine State Forest - Northern Unit continues in January with "Genesis of the Kettle Moraine." The program will be held on Thursday, Jan. 10, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Henry S. Reuss Ice Age Visitor Center. The Ice Age Visitor Center is located off of Hwy. 67, one half mile west of Dundee. The program is free, but donations are always gratefully accepted.

Thanks to the glaciers of the last Ice Age, we have the hills of the Kettle Moraine running more than 100 miles through eastern Wisconsin. This remarkable glacial landform draws people from all over the world who want to study it as well as enjoy the beauty of the area. Did you know that the Kettle Moraine hills are one of the only Wisconsin landforms visible from space?

Dr. David Mickelson is a geology professor emeritus from UW-Madison. Over his career and now in retirement, he has studied the impact of the last Ice Age on Wisconsin. He co-authored a paper on the genesis of the Kettle Moraine and will be sharing what is now known about the creation of these world-renowned hills.

For further information or directions to the Ice Age Visitor Center, please contact the staff at 533-8322.

The center's winter hours are Wednesday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
