Movie Series Starts at Greens N Grains with ‘Escarpment’

What was it like in eastern Wisconsin 425 million years ago? What has gone on in the geologic and biologic past beneath our feet? These questions will be addressed at the Jan. 24 Greens N Grains Dinner and a Movie screening of Escarpment.

Escarpment is the natural history story of Eastern Wisconsin and the Niagara Escarpment region of the Great Lakes. The film was shot on location along the entire length of the Niagara Escarpment, with a Door County focus. It is a fast-paced, fun voyage through billions of years of the state’s natural history. The film reconstructs ecosystems that existed when the dolomitic rocks of the Niagara Escarpment were formed, considers if dinosaurs ever walked in Door County, follows the path of glaciers, and many other major events in our geologic journey.

In the spirit of the Discovery Channel and National Geographic films, geologist and sustainologist Roger Kuhns produced a film for all ages. Kuhns has worked on the Niagara Escarpment and Great Lakes geology and ecology during the course of his career.
