Film highlights unique beauty of Upper Mississippi

Posted: Updated:

WINONA, Minnesota (WXOW) - A La Crescent biologist has captured on film the beauty of deeply carved river valleys in a unique area of the Upper Mississippi River.

The Driftless Area includes portions of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa that were never touched by glaciers. Biologist George Howe says he wanted to showcase the area and tell a story of the scientists and others exploring the area.

Untamed Science helped Howe produce the film "Mysteries of the Driftless" which has been showed at film festivals across the country, on PBS and Saturday at Winona State University. It is scheduled for a showing as part of a three-film series starting at 3:30 p.m. at Somsen Auditorium. According to the festival schedule, there is a Q & A session scheduled with Howe following the film.

Howe tells the Winona Daily News says the film features the "genuine stories of discovery that mix science with humor and human experiences."
