19 - The Green Room

Gleason, Wisconsin 54435, United States

Created By: UW-Madison


“The Green Room” was given its name by botanist, Libby Zimmerman, who has been visiting Kemp for many years. She discovered this small kettle hole in the forest, filled with sphagnum moss. Imagine a giant block of ice sitting here 15 thousand years ago…that’s how the kettle formed. The ice broke off the retreating glacier and was buried by glacial outwash – soil, stones, etc. When the ice melts, a depression in the landscape remains.
