“Geology is Destiny —across the Chicago Portage; a Story of Glaciers, Voyageurs, and Carp!” by David Dolak (via Zoom)

September 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Chicago’s pre-eminence as the largest metropolitan area in the middle of North America is a result of the fortuitous conditions of access across the Mid-Continental watershed divide created by glacial processes over the past 10,000 years. The Chicago Portage water passage has been used by Native Americans and European voyageurs. It was ultimately exploited by the famous reversal of the Chicago River by the Sanitary and Ship Canal, which led to great economic and population growth in the Region but also created environmental costs. The program includes a lecture, visual Images, and a live performance of an original song based on these topics. David Dolak is an environmental scientist, musician, luthier, and outdoorsman. He has worked at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and Argonne National Laboratory. David is currently Professor of Instruction Columbia College Chicago.
