Insects – What, Where, Why, and Who Cares?
Tuesday, Oct. 21, 7:00 pm at Riveredge

Join naturalist Kate Redmond as she explores the natural history of insects. How do they develop? What do they eat? How do they keep from getting eaten? What kinds of special talents do they have? And who is the BugLady, anyway? We will answer these questions and more during this very educational and fun presentation.

Geology of the Kettle Moraine
Tuesday, Oct. 28, 7pm at Lac Lawrann

Dr. Paul Price from UW Washington County will discuss the glacial processes that formed the interlobate moraine that we call the Kettle Moraine as well as the glacial lakes, drumlins, kames, kettles, and other features associated with the local landscape. He will place those processes in the context of the pre-existing landscape and how it helped guide the glaciers as well as being shaped by them.
