The Driftless area gets its name from the total lack of glacial drift material – in other words the last glaciers never reached this area and is the only part of Wisconsin with no natural lakes. In addition to the curious topography of steep slopes and cliffs, there are unique habitats that are home to rare species of plants and animals.
