Weber Center for the Performing Arts
Free event. No reservations required.
World premiere of Mysteries of the Driftless Zone documentary. What strange forces saved one isolated section along the Upper Mississippi River from the repeated crushing and scouring effects of glaciers during the last million years? What pre-ice age throwbacks survived here in this unique geologic refuge that holds more Native
America effigy mounds, petroglyph caves, strange geology features, and
rare species than anywhere in the Midwest? Join us for a screening of the educational documentary film that answers these questions and more while awakening a nation to the ecological uniqueness of the Driftless Area.
Produced by Untamed Science in collaboration with the Mississippi Valley Conservancy.
