Driftless Region

A member of the HDT team recently relocated to the Winona, MN area and took Happy Dancing Turtle with her! We are excited to be extending our reach into a second location – the Driftless Region. Nora will be returning to the Pine River location frequently during the summer before putting her whole effort into working to fulfill our mission in southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin. She will be promoting sustainable living through a variety of outreach and educational activities. You can follow our Driftless Region activities on our new Facebook page.

Why Driftless?

The Driftless Region is an area of southeastern Minnesota, southwestern Wisconsin, northeastern Iowa, and northwestern Illinois that was untouched by glaciers during the last ice age. This means it is free from the glacial drift, (sediment deposits) that were left behind to cover much of the rest of the Midwest during the last glacial retreat. This area lays claim to an incredibly dierse topography, bountiful natural resources, unique and important ecocystems, and a high concentration of organic farms. We are excited to build our connections as we extend our outreach in this area of the Midwest!


Upcoming Driftless Events



Don't miss the first Happy Dancing Turtle - Driftless Region event at the Trempealeau Public Library on Saturday, April 14th to celebrate Earth Day! The focus selected for this year's Earth Day is to "End Plastic Pollution", so join us to learn more about how you can do your part  through a game show, crafts, a scavenger hunt, books, and more! We'll also be giving out prizes to help end plastic pollution, such as reuseable shopping bags and reuseable nalgene water bottles! The library will provide snacks.
