The Unique Driftless

I’m going to continue posting Driftless Area related material as we get ready for the move. Next up is a short documentary exploring the many different unique attributes of the Driftless Area by exploring how it was made. This is less than 30 minutes and pretty darn awesome (effigy mounds, rattle snakes, caves, arctic aged plants and more).

One point the video makes that I think can be extrapolated to many unique resources is that, lots of times, local residents aren’t aware of how special or unique their own back yards really are. As such, it doesn’t occur to them to protect or preserve it.

One gentleman perfectly shows this when asked what the Driftless Area is he he responds,
“Is it a desert?”
