Historical Context:
A ravine is a landform narrower than a canyon. They are often created from years of erosion by streams or other small flowing bodies of water. Ravines are typically classified as larger in scale than gullies, although smaller than valleys. The ravines of Allendale, Michigan are undergoing rapid erosion, down cutting, and widespread slope instability. Geology and earth sciences students and professors are working hard to save the natural landscape around GVSU's campus.
