Land Between the Waters map text -

Newcomers to Michigan, Wisconsin, and the Great Lakes have been uncovering pleasures and surprises ever since French explorer Jean Nicolet paddled into this region in 1634. On a search for a northwest passage, he stepped ashore near Green Bay, thinking he had reached the Orient.


Lumber barons of the past century took out much of the timber; mining companies skimmed off the richest ore; overfishing and such pests as the sea lamprey and alewife reduced the fish supply. But a bountiful land remains. Vacationists come from afar, drawn by the outdoors and north woods peace.

State tree of Wisconsin

The Sugar Maple is one of the most important and beautiful trees. Along with the Black Maple, it is the major source of sap for making maple syrup, and its wood is desired in furniture and flooring. While the Sugar Maple is easy to transplant, and fairly fast growing, it doesn't like its roots compacted and is not tolerant of pollution.

Badger, Photographic Print

Badgers, omnivores in the weasel family Mustelidae, are the state animal of Wisconsin and mascot of the University of Wisconsin.

FYI - did you know the dachshund dog (dach=badger in German) were originally bred for hunting badgers? Badger hair is used in shaving and paint brushes, and as trim in American Indian garments. Harry Potter's Hogwarts School features a badger as the mascot for Hufflepuff House, and then there is Mr. Badger in Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows.

View of the Great Treaty Held at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, September, 1825, Giclee Print

The name Prairie du Chien (French = prairie of the dog) refers to the area near the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers, “a strategic point along the Fox-Wisconsin Waterway that connects the Great Lakes with the Mississippi.”

The Great Treaty of 1825 was the first of several treaties between the US and the Sioux, Sac and Fox, Menominee, Ioway, Winnebago, Chippewa, Ottaway, and Potawatomi to establish peace by demarcating formal boundaries between the Native American tribes. William Clark and his son Lewis Clark signed the first treaty of Prairie du Chien.
