We are extremely grateful for Roger and Dan’s tremendous generosity and creative contribution to spreading awareness of our precious natural wonder we call The Ledge! Our film premieres and showings around Earth Day/Week 2017 were incredibly successful, thanks to the many event organizers and members of the public who filled the theaters and auditoriums to capacity.  EXCITING NEWS to share is that Wisconsin Public Television will be airing a shortened version of Dan’s film sometime this year. We will post the date as soon as we know!

Welcome to the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network’s website! We hope you take the time to explore and learn about this unique, globally significant geologic resource which lies partly in northeastern Wisconsin. The Escarpment continues to form what is sometimes called The Great Arc, as it extends in a northern-bent bow shape until it traverses easterly through Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula, Niagara Falls, and western New York State.
