Mequon Nature Preserve
Our mission is to be a guiding example of restoration by returning an urban/suburban area to pre-settlement conditions and establishing an environmental education conservancy and natural habitat that inspires exploration and cultivates stewardship, encouraging visitors to get off the path.
I love this place! Absolutely beautiful in the spring, fall, and especially summer. Perfect size for a ≥1 hour walk depending on the paths you take. The lookout tower is a perfect feature there, at the heart of open fields and sparse forests. On clear days, you can even see the U.S. Bank building downtown Milwaukee through the telescopes at the top. The tower goes up maybe four or five stories so be sure not to trip going on the stairs!
Great place to see some Wildlife and a lot of area to walk. Pet friendly too!!!
Ambitious effort to restore farm fields to original habitat. Nice walking trails
Beautiful views. Cool observation tower
Its fresh, expansive and novel. Makes quite the picturesque walk all winter, spring and fall. The lookout tower is a rave for kids.
