What Is the Driftless Area?
The Driftless Area encompasses 24,000 square miles, including portions of Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Also called the Paleozoic Plateau, it is one of the few regions left untouched by the last glacial period. When glaciers carved paths across the Upper Mississippi River Valley 12,500 years ago, their paths skirted Allamakee County and the greater Driftless Area. The existing topography was preserved, and the animal and plant species of the area were mostly protected from the loss of habitat other species experienced in the surrounding areas.
