On Saturday, February 21, the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society is sponsoring a showing of the short feature, "Mysteries of the Driftless." The film portrays a team of movie-making scientists who kayak, spelunk, hike, climb bluffs, and hop a plane to experience the geological "mysteries" of the Upper Mississippi Driftless Area. The film credits TPE for contributing to its production.
Tim Jacobson, the film's executive producer, will introduce the film. Later, University of Dubuque geologist Dale Easley and JDCF Executive Director Steve Barg will join Jacobson for a discussion of how you might experience these "mysteries" in the tri-state area.
Location: Galena Territory Association Owners' Club, 2000 Territory Drive, Galena, IL. There is a large parking lot which is kept free of snow. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and is expected to conclude by 9 p.m. Popcorn, cookies and coffee will be served, and beer, wine and soda will be available for purchase.
