Fall 2020 Meeting Schedule
The Oct. 21 Coulee Region TU meeting features noted geologist Dr. Kelvin Rodolfo on “ How the Driftless Area’s Karst geology creates our marvelous trout streams, and how to protect them.”
In a Zoom meeting on Wednesday, October 21 at 7 p.m., a career geologist and local resident will enlighten us on how our bedrock geology helps create our spring creeks, and makes them the perfect waters for trout.
Dr. Kelvin Rodolfo is a professor emeritus from the University of Illinois and has spent his career studying the hard stuff- the rocks and minerals underlying our world. He has become well known for teaching so many of us about our not-quite-unique limestone- sandstone bedrock layers and residing concerns about damaging land uses that threaten our ground and surface waters.
Right now we are facing threats to those waters from poor land use and industrialized livestock CAFOs and frank sand mining, as well as flooding and other impacts from heavy rains prompted by climate change. If we are to respond to those threats, Dr. Rodolfo can inform us of the underlying science.
