Area Information The Pleistocene glaciers and their meltwaters forever changed the Illinois landscape. Nearly 90 percent of the state was once covered by one or more sheets of glacial ice. When the last of the glaciers began to melt from Illinois, about 14,000 years ago, the country that emerged looked far different from preglacial lands. The glaciers had scraped and smeared the landforms they overrode (much the same way a person kneads dough). The moving ice carried colossal amounts of rock and earth, and when the ice melted, it dumped whatever it was carrying in place.
