Suamico - Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve

2024 Lakeview Drive

Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve has 920 acres of forest, meadows and wetlands where prehistoric Indian tribes once hunted, fished, and camped. Today this natural area is home and refuge for a wide variety of waterfowl, wildlife, and plant species. Over 9 miles of scenic hiking trails run through the marshes and forests of the preserve. These trails are also groomed for cross country skiing in the winter months. All trails begin and end at the Interpretive Center.

Also located amidst the preserve is the West Shores Interpretive Center, which offers a variety of educational programs throughout the year and gives visitors the opportunity to explore nature up close with exciting hands-on exhibits.

I went on a field trip with my child's class. The gentleman walking the class through the entire day was wonderful, funny & patient. Kids had a great opportunity to check out the ponds using nets, buckets etc. They had a blast. Definitely would go again. It is open for families to visit and I recommend it for something different to do outside as well as a learning activity.

We love a stroll through the woods on the winding trails and viewing wildlife. They sponsor different nature related crafts (i.e. bird feeder & bird house building) at reasonable prices that are kid and adult friendly. They even teach snow shoeing and rent the shoes for little ones, (our daughter was 2 years old at the time we first attended), and adults. The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and always ready willing and able to answer questions. They even have a Little Free Library. They really have a lot to offer for everyone who wants to learn and explore, and they have a way of pulling ("reluctant, apprehensive, novice") adventurers out of their shells. :) Our family enjoys visiting this place and we find a new encounter every time!
