A haven for WaterfowlWhen the last Glaciers receded from the Northern Great Plains 10,000 years ago, they left behind shallow depressions called "potholes." Some of these prairie potholes hold water temporarily, while others hold water year-round. These wetlands nurture a variety of insect and plant life, which in turn attracts great numbers of waterfowl (ducks and geese) and other wildlife. At least half of North America's waterfowl breed in the Prairie Pothole Region.
