Great Lakes Aquarium

Uplands

The uplands or woodlands perched along the shores of Lake Superior are home to reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds and more. These species rely on the vast forested and wetland filled acres for food and shelter. The rocky ridge lines of the region paired with the influence of the lake, produce unique weather patterns. People and animals migrate along the north shore of Lake Superior in the spring and fall while many also call this region home year round.

The Aquarium’s uplands gallery is home to frogs and salamanders. Look closely to see their well camouflaged bodies. The tree frogs can even change color! Crawl into the bear den to hibernate with mama bear or find the animals hidden in the forest.
