Geology Read Margaret Fosmoe’s January 13th article in the South Bend Tribune entitled Everglades of the North and write a one to two page summary / reaction, much like your previous writing assignment. The article title in the previous sentence is a hyperlink to the article, but I’ve also attached a PDF of the article to this assignment.
I very strongly encourage you to use Google Maps to view what’s left of this once-vast marshland, as described in the article. As a starting point, I’ll paste a link below that will take you to a Google Map centered on the now-straight Kankakee River a little southeast of Hebron, IN. Again, as mentioned in Ms. Fosmoe’s article, note the abundant pinhook lakes near the banks of the modern Kankakee, which reveal its previous meandering nature.
