The Prairie Forest Guide app is an incredible resource for sharing knowledge about the ancient history of the Yorath Island Glacial Spillway, now known as the West Swale. By utilizing archaeological, geological, and ecological concepts and theories, the app offers an interactive, detailed interpretation of the area’s past.
The Yorath Island Glacial Spillway was formed by the retreat of the last ice age glaciers, and it is estimated to have been in existence for more than 10,000 years. The app explains how the spillway changed over time and how its features formed, such as the intermittent wetland, the meandering channel, and the sands and gravels that fill the area.
Not only does the app provide a comprehensive overview of the geology and archaeology of the Yorath Island Glacial Spillway, it also tells the story of how the glacial spillway affected the lifestyle of the Paleoindian people who lived in the area. Through the app, users are able to learn about the tools and technology the Paleoindians developed to live in the area and how their lifestyle and activities changed due to the glacial spillway.
The app also offers a detailed look at the life of the Ice Age mammals that resided in the area. Through the app, users are able to learn about the different species of animals that lived in the area, as well as the changes in their behavior and habitat due to the glacial spillway.
