Welcome To the Mequon Nature Preserve


We’re here to educate and enlighten! We link the landscape to people, giving children and adults an awareness and appreciation of the natural environment through hands-on experiences and free exploration.

We’re unique by nature! With almost a square mile, and over 400 acres of land,our geography includes emerging forests,natural wetlands and a restored prairie. Through our mission of being the guiding example of restoration, we’re returning this urban / suburban area to pre-settlement conditions, and establishingan environmental conservancy and natural habitat that inspires exploration and cultivates stewardships.
