Wisconsin's Lakes: Gift of the Glaciers

Central Wisconsin is renowned for its post-glacial landscape features such as pot hole lakes, moraines and outwash plains. The UWSP campus sits on a portion of the outwash plain from the Green Bay Lobe of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. Other local features include polygonal cracks indicative of tundra environments, and ice-walled lake deposits.
