Ice Age National Scenic Trail

Mollie O'Brien and Tyler Iacobucci

15,000 years ago during the ice age prehistoric animals roamed the earth.

North america was covered by glaciers, once the glaciers retreaded kettle lakes and moraines formed. In 1980 the Ice Age National Scenic trail was established in Wisconsin. It out lines the path in which a glacier once traveled. It's nearly 1,200 miles long and attracts about 1,250,000 visitors a year!

How did glaciers shape the environment?

Glaciers shaped the environment by abrading the land and plucking gigantic boulders and depositing them in different areas of the earth as they retreaded or melted.
