We will be meeting in room 090/070 in OSU's 18th Avenue Library.


Date:  04/02/14 - 6:30pm


Topic: Ice Age Ohio



We will look at the effects (erosional and depositional) glaciers had on the landscape, discuss theories for the causes of glaciation, review the animals that lived in Ohio during the Ice Age and end with a look at a dig near Findlay, Ohio, that produced many fossil bones.
