A 1-mile-thick glacial ice sheet moved over Illinois 15,000 years ago and left its mark on Midewin. Environments in prehistoric times included tropical swamplands and subtropical oceans. During this webinar, we will hear about the rocks, hills and plains at Midewin that still bear evidence of these vastly different environments.
