  • Whooping Cranes have been brought back from the brink of extinction. To see these magnificent birds riding the updrafts and flying free is beyond amazing. Going to Necedah is like going to church...  more »

  • Relaxing walks out in nature. Great kids programs, good interactive learning center inside. Kids can check out a backpack with tools, guides, pamphlets, etc. Wonderful learning opportunities, great experiences. The volunteers are always so friendly and helpful! Cute gift shop for souvenirs. They even have some meeting rooms there.
  • Absolutely wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to see several pairs of whooping cranes, a sandhill crane, oriels, and a few other cool birds. The visitor center was very impressive and the greeters were helpful and nice. We really enjoyed hiking the trails and bird watching. What a wonderful resource for Wisconsin!
