We often take the landscape for granted, but have you ever wondered, say, where Lake Erie actually comes from? Or why the Cuyahoga River nearly makes a 180 degree turn in Akron? To find the answer you have two choices: go back in time about 14-thousand years and watch a glacier, or tune in Monday morning at 9. A local geology professor joins host Dan Moulthrop for a Science Cafe explaining such mysteries as what put the ridge in Center Ridge Road and why we owe our settlement patterns to a glacier named for the state of Wisconsin.
