Juneau County: Major Attraction

Clip: Special | 8m | Video has closed captioning.

Glacial waters left large areas of poor land that ironically became a major attraction. Wisconsin’s National Guard used it for a training camp. The Ho Chunk Nation performed ceremonial dances in a natural amphitheater carved by the water. Hydroelectric dams created the vast Petenwell and Castle Rock flowages. And the Necedah Wildlife Refuge helped to save the endangered Whooping Crane.
