Join the UW-Madison Geology Museum in a time-traveling safari to ancient Wisconsin! You will get to see what Wisconsin looked like 450 million years ago when it was covered by a shallow, tropical sea. You’ll learn about the rocks we can see in southern Wisconsin, the fossils that are found in them, and what those creatures would have looked like when they were alive.
