After nearly 2 years of shooting and post production we're finally ready to release the full Driftless Zone documentary. We had a sold out show at the World Premier September 16th in La Crosse and we wanted to make sure everyone had an opportunity to watch the documentary and share with friends and family in the driftless.

The Mysteries of the Driftless is a documentary about a team of explorers and scientists kayaking down deeply cut tributary valleys, flying in ultralights, and climbing rocky bluffs to reveal answers to the mysteries within the driftless area. Their journey will expose both the science and threats behind three unique features of the zone - rare plants and animals, odd geological phenomenon, and striking remnants of a Native American pilgrimage like no other.

What these explorers reveal will not only give the audience a greater appreciation for the unique diversity of this "island of land" that escaped glacial scouring, but will inspire a greater appreciation for this amazing area. The goal is not to answer all the mysteries, but to document the exploratory process for the viewers. In the end, the film will ignite the curiosity of viewers to discover more about the area for themselves.

Produced by Untamed Science and the Mississippi Valley Conservancy.
