such a wonderful place to come with family, friends, or alone to enjoy nature. The trails are a relaxing way to enjoy nature without wading through grasses and underbrush. The nature center offers so much to see and experience.

I have been here in the summer, fall and winter and it is a wonderful place for photography and quiet walks in the woods. Just a short walk from downtown Kaukauna is this little gem of a preserve. You may come across deer, wild turkeys,...More
