  • One of Wisconsin's natural gems! I went here recently on a birding expedition and was so impressed with the staff, the landscape, and the opportunities to take it all in on foot and by boat. We saw several bald eagles, blue and green heron, pelicans, swallows,a variety of ducks, beavers, frogs, and more! I plan to come back again next spring.
