Searching for Waterfalls

Posted on May 12th, 2010 by

Prof. Bob Douglas is featured in the article "Searching for Waterfalls: A Geographer Scours a River Valley for Streams Still Plunging after a Deluge 10,000 Year Ago" by Marc Hequet.

Geography Professor Bob Douglas’ knowledge of the waterfalls of the Minnesota River watershed is featured in the current edition of Minnesota Conservation Volunteer. Bob and his wife Judy have searched for and documented 30 falls in the region.

“Waterfalls for me are beauty,” Bob is quoted as saying in the article. “They evoke a sense of solitude. They never stay the same.”

To read more about Bob’s waterfall explorations and learn how these waterfalls formed and why they won’t last forever, I highly recommend the May-June 2010 issue of Minnesota Conservation Volunteer.
