What the Hill is a Moraine?

How did Moraine Hills State Park get its name? 


Join Naturalist Mary Colwell for this interactive program to find out! You will discover how the hills, lakes and even the Fox River were formed.  Activities will bring to life the motion of the Wisconsinan Glacier with your own bare hands! Then we will walk the trail to see some of the park's glacial remnants and overlook the glacier's powerful work.
