Bluffs along the shore of Lake Michigan in Sheridan Park contain a wealth of Wisconsin history largely unknown by the many who visit each year. Remnants of Wisconsin’s deep geological past mingle with our modern human history help piece together a story three billion years in the making. Fiery volcanoes, ancient seas, and the detailed history of the Ice Age are all present and waiting to be experienced by us, the newly arrived human beings who now serve as caretakers of this remarkable place. Join us on Tuesday, November 19th at 7 pm as The Cudahy Historical Society hosts Paleontologist and Lecturer Scott Schaefer as he presents “Wisconsin’s Ancient Stories: The Historical Geology of Sheridan Park.”

Scott Schaefer is a Paleontologist and lecturer in the Geosciences Department at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and instructor of Natural Science at the Milwaukee Area Technical College.  Scott holds a B.A. in ancient history, and a Masters of Science in Geology both from UWM. A strong advocate of outreach, Scott dedicates much of his free time to science education and paleontology to enhance public understanding of the natural world around us. As a paleoecologist, Scott studies not only the animals of the fossil record, but also interprets the ancient environments in which these organisms lived and died relative to the changes in global paleoecosystems and climate.
