Edible Geology for Geologic Map Day

In celebration of Earth Science Week and National Geologic Map Day (which is tomorrow, 10-18), DGER geologist and baker extraordinaire Carrie Gillum has indulged us with some edible cartography today! She spent several days baking and preparing the decorations, which are 100% edible and use such materials as pretzel sticks and spaghetti noodles to represent vegetation. We invite you to view this delectable map on display in the DNR Geology Library, but hurry–I have a feeling that this geology will erode quickly!
