Geology at Sylvan Solace

September 10, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Even a relatively flat area such as Sylvan Solace Preserve can yield interesting facts about the pre-settlement history of the land. Is it glacial outwash? Is it a glacial end moraine remnant? What is the makeup of the rocks? Are they commonly found in this part of the State, or were they brought from the Canadian Shield country far to the north by glacial activity? Can you see evidence of old stream flows that no longer exist? What can we learn from the river or river banks? Join us for a walk with Isabella Soil Conservation District Environmental Educator Mike LeValley and hear his take on the evidence at Sylvan Solace. This will be a leisurely walk around the preserve to see what clues are out there. We will meet at the Sylvan Solace parking lot off Pickard Road.
