Learn how millennia of glacial advances and retreats created special landforms and topography at Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary and throughout the surrounding area. We'll discuss many fascinating animals that once roamed this land, and examine fossils of some of these creatures. Afterwards, we'll hike to key locations on the sanctuary to observe and learn how to identify various distinctive glacial landforms, their characteristics, how they came about, and how they continue to influence the world around us today.
