Date: 2/22/2015
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 3:30 PM
Description:
 Have you ever noticed that Rochester sits in the bottom of a landscape bowl? Our landform has arisen from the interplay between water and our underlying bedrock, over hundreds of thousands of years.

Learn how inland oceans, rushing glacial melt water and tiny raindrops have formed, dissolved, and carved the rocks upon which we live. Todd Osweiler (Rochester Public Utilities) and Barb Huberty (formerly of Rochester Public Works Department, currently director of the Minnesota Legislative Water Commission) will take you on a sojourn through geologic time and help you discover how Rochesterís geology guides the Cityís storm water management and groundwater protection decisions. Refreshments provided.

Sponsored by the Rochester Public Library, Prairie Smoke, and Friends of Indian Heights. For more information, contact Dawn@foih.org.
