Secrets Under Lake Huron is Great Lakes Seminar Topic

On Monday April 15th at 7pm, the Inland Seas Education Association will host a seminar titled “Secrets Under Lake Huron”. 

ISEA is excited to present Dr. Guy Meadows, the Director of Great Lakes Initiatives at the Great Lakes Research Center, Michigan Technological University . Dr. Meadows will be speaking of his research of the Alpena-Amberley Ridge, an underwater limestone ridge that diagonally crosses Lake Huron. During the period 7,500-10,000 years ago, when lake levels were much lower, this ridge was exposed at the surface. This ridge may have been used by ancient hunters to create a "drive lane" to facilitate hunting of caribou. Dr. Meadows will discuss this underwater discovery and the evidence of early human occupation.

This seminar is free and open to the public.
