Dick Thiede, AOGWLG*, will present a lecture on Friday, August 27 at 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Mercer Community Center. The lecture will describe the 5 billion year geologic history of the Northern Highlands with a focus on process and geological cycles. From molten ball to ocean bottom to Teton-like mountain rage to land of lakes, Northern Wisconsin has become a world-class source of metals and precious minerals.
