Land, Wind, and Water: Forces that Form Our Landscape
Schlitz Audubon is the perfect place to learn about how Wisconsin’s land was shaped by forces long ago and continues to be changed today. We’re located on ¼ mile stretch of Lake Michigan shoreline, providing a unique outdoor classroom to teach about the interactions of land, wind, and water. As students embark on an adventure through our grounds, we study the concepts of weathering, erosion, and deposition. After hiking down to the beach, we build landforms in the sand and search for examples of chemical and physical change, including evidence of Wisconsin’s glacial past.
