Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is an oasis of natural beauty and habitat located on the shores of Lake Michigan – just 15 minutes from downtown Milwaukee. We connect people of all ages with nature and inspire them to become responsible stewards of the natural world.

While we graciously restore and preserve our 185-acre sanctuary for all to enjoy, we also treasure the opportunity to nurture the minds, bodies, and spirits of all who visit. There is abundant research showing the positive impact of nature on people of all ages – this is why we are so dedicated and passionate about what we do!

We offer unlimited opportunities for personal life enrichment by providing:

Natural science education for audiences of all ages.

A magnificent, natural habitat for personal solitude or more active pursuits, such as hiking or cross-country skiing.

Volunteer and internship opportunities in environmental education and stewardship.

Absolutely gorgeous venue for a wedding in early fall. We had an amazing day with beautiful natural scenery for photos to celebrate our family's very important day! And the lodge was perfect with cocktails and appetizers on the huge wrap-around porch followed by dinner inside and dancing. Just like a fairy tale wedding!

Beautiful interior, with reptile and raptor events often. Gorgeous trails, several accessible, to ponds, through woodland, prairie, and to Lake Michigan. Birds and wildlife abound. Great for families or for a quiet solo hike. Gift center has fantastic books, art, and nature themed items.

Love every minute that I am here. Great place to hike around and connect with nature or just cozy up and read a book. Very educational for families and always fun events happening. Membership is well worth it.

A stunning gem! Beautiful trails, easily walkable even with a baby stroller. The grounds are lovely, the little beaches are gorgeous. While I was there a wedding was being set up. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a more beautiful outdoor wedding venue. The cost for a one time visit is a bit high, but a family membership is very reasonable and well worth it.

Great trails. Be sure to catch the live raptors on Saturdays & Sundays at 1:00. Or the raptor show on the first Sat. of each month.
