Our six miles of trails take visitors through wetlands, restored prairies, forests, ravines, bluffs, and Lake Michigan shoreline. We also offer more than a mile of boardwalk and crushed stone that is wheelchair and stroller friendly. Hike our trails anytime throughout the day at your own pace or on a guided hike.  

Other drop-in activities include a meet and greet with birds from our Raptor Program between noon and 2:00pm and encounters with other live animals between noon and 3:00pm. 

The Dorothy K. Vallier Environmental Learning Center, designed by The Kubala Washatko Architects and built in 2003, is the portal to 185 acres of varied habitats. Features of the Gold LEED-certified building include extensive use of natural light with window systems that supply 10-20% of the building’s electricity. The building includes classrooms for Nature Preschool through adult education. You are welcome to explore the building on your own throughout the day, and encourage you to head upstairs to our art gallery which will feature an exhibit local artist Joanna Poehlmann.

Free to all. No registration required.
