Some of the animals in this region are
White-tailed deer, moose, coyotes, wolves,snowshoe hares , woodpeckers,blue bids, red -winged black birds,and some kinds of dolphins.
The St.Lawrence Lowlands were formed almost 500 million years ago. There was an ice age and when the ice age was over all the glaciers started melting. This is called glaciation. There was an ice that was called Laurentide and it covered the St. Lawrence Lowlands. That type of ice sheet would move which could create valleys in the land. After the ice sheet melted it left a valley which is now called the St. Lawrence Lowlands.
The Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Lowland has a rolling landscape which is the result of glaciation. There is a domination of shallow lakes and deep glaciated river canyons punctuating the rolling landscape of plains and hills. The region is defined by the St Lawrence river and seaway. To the north of the river lies the Canadian Shield, which formed in the Archean period of geologic time, some 2.5 billion years ago. The Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Lowlands region also extends to the south of the river to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
The continental climate of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Lowlands forces people to adapt to cold winters and warm summers. You cannot live in this region without a good warm coat and snow boots. Due to the humid heat in the summer, people have to adapt by using fans and air conditioning units to cool themselves down.The average temperature is -3 degrees celsius to -9 degrees celsius and the snow fall is 200 to 300cm all winter.Summer is the wettest season with 75-100mm of rain with an average temp. of -21 degrees celcius
