Our Programs

General Operations

Donations in this area help the overall mission of the organization and ensure we remain FREE for all.

Environmental Education

Every year, over 3,000 students from the Greater Milwaukee area step onto the land for FREE field trips. Students participate in field experiences which include: exploring the 3 main habitats here, abiotic pond monitoring, owl adaptations, birding, insects in the prairie, and many more! MNP also pays for busing students here if they come from MPS. Donations will help purchase supplies for field trips and provide busing to the schools in need!

Land Restoration

MNP is in the process of converting 510 acres of land from agriculture fields to a mosaic of forests, prairies, and wetlands. Every year, staff plants thousands of native tree species: from little tree saplings to up to larger 2.5 inch diameter ball and burlap trees. Staff works year-round removing different invasive plant species on property. Help us continue this vital work by donating so staff can purchase the necessary equipment!

Tilia and Timber the Conservation Dogs

Tilia and Timber are English Chocolate Labradors and are an important members of MNP’s staff! They assist us in monitoring indicator animal species and invasive plant species. Their work is on the cutting edge of conservation science! Donate to help continue their training!
