Great Lakes Basin desert steppe

WWF Abstract

If you like wide-open spaces, crystal-clear lakes, and abundant wildlife, youÂ’ll love the Great Lakes Basin Desert Steppe ecoregion. In this ecoregion, herds of ungulates (hoofed animals) roam the dry, grassy plains, while flocks of birds fly across the wide, blue sky. Hundreds of lakes dot the landscape, providing habitats for migrating birds and places for wandering wildlife to rest and drink.
