“My family grew up loving the outdoors, and we always took an interest in what it was we were seeing out there,” says Setterholm on his start in geology. He worked for the Minnesota Geological Survey for 40 years before retiring.
“Geology is everywhere,” he says. “It’s the study of the earth, and we all live on the earth. It’s not just the description of the formations we see, but how they affect how we live here in Scandia.”
