Mississippi Monday

How did the Mississippi River get its start?  It all started ten thousand years ago with massive ice sheets that covered much of Canada.  When the ice sheets moved back north, an enormous pool of water called Lake Agassiz was left behind.  Because the water from Lake Agassiz couldn’t flow north due to the ice, it flowed south instead, creating the Mississippi River.

Join us on Mississippi Mondays to learn about the remarkable river that is part of our community.
