The Wood Mountain Uplands
Upland Organics and gets its name from it’s proximity to the Wood Mountain Uplands formation. The Wood Mountain Uplands has a maximum elevation of 1,013 m and are located just east of Cypress Hills. These uplands stood higher than the ice sheet of the last glacier period and as a result, are covered with varying amounts of glacial till with some higher areas still containing the sands and gravels. As a result of the retreating glacier, this area is characterized by many hills and valleys sometimes making farming in this unique area a real challenge! The village of Wood Mountain is located on the most northern part of the plateau while the Grasslands National Park is located to the southwest.
