Geocache Description:

Potawatomi State Park on the shore of Sturgeon Bay in southern Door County, has 1,200 acres of gently rolling upland terrain bordered by steep slopes and rugged limestone cliffs. The park is named in honor of the tribe that inhabited Green Bay’s shores and islands when Europeans first settled the area. The tribe called themselves Bo-De-Wad-Me which means "keeper of the fire." Eventually the spelling and pronunciation were changed to Potawatomi.

 


The Lake Michigan shoreline dominates the till plains biome. This biome was shaped by the last glaciation with glacial till left behind forming the landscape of eskers, drumlins and moraines most easily seen within the Kettle Moraine forest units.  The lakeshore displays sand dunes that will often adjoin tamarack swamplands.  Close to Lake Michigan’s shores, birds of water such as shorebirds and ducks will be found.  Animal life may include White Tailed Deer and small mammals such as otters and fox.
