Our Town Marquette: Driftless Area Wetlands Centre

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Visitors to Our Towns Marquette, McGregor, and Prairie du Chien are often surprised to see the beautiful hills and bluffs that are so different from other parts of the two states.

Glaciers tens of thousands of years ago missed the area in northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin where today we find Our Towns.

They lie in the so-called "driftless area."

The place to learn more about this is the Driftless Area Wetlands Centre in Marquette.

It offers interactive educational experiences that often start with the young.
