Named for the massive ice sheet that shaped its landscape, Glacial Park is the perfect setting for this educational program on glacial landforms. Begin the day indoors, learning about geologic time, the formation of northern Illinois, Ice Age mammals, and glacial forces. Students listen to a lecture, watch a movie, and complete worksheets. Outdoor activities include a hike to see a kettle marsh, kettle bog, and the camelback kames.
