Schlitz Audubon Nature Center

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.

Love this park's true natural wilderness, and that it has several excess points directly to lake Michigan. Loved the amphibian pond with a very nice solid wooden walkway around it. I like that you can choose many paths to take around the park. Definitely an awesome park to visit.

Wonderfully nature preserve. Great for kids of all ages. Membership available and recommended. Forest hikes, Lakeside access, ponds and grassland trails. Most parts handicapped accessible. New pathways, great visitors center. Bring your walking stick and good hiking shoes.

Attended for a wedding. It was amazing! The building itself is absolutely beautiful. The bird of prey during the cocktail hour were such a unique experience and educational at the same time. The handlers were very knowledgeable and pleasant. The food served was absolutely delicious (especially for buffet style wedding food). Overall a beautiful place to visit and plan on going back this summer to hike/explore outside

I love going to run here and be in nature. There is a trail by the lake and a really nice meadow trail. The only thing that I would caution about this place is getting married here. Space is limited, and you have to shut it down early due to neighbors.
