Mammals are some of the most recognizable animals in our ecosystem. From deer to bats to muskrats, lots of furry, warm-blooded creatures share these 185 acres. The Center is continually working to provide habitat for and monitor the populations of many of these species. The above deer photograph was taken on a trail camera through our Snapshot Wisconsin program partnership. Read program details below. 


Bat Monitoring

Join us at sunset one night, every other week, during summer, to monitor bats at the Center. We start indoors to go over equipment, introduce the bat species previously found here, and why it is important to monitor them. Following the indoor portion, we will hike the trails for about an hour using an echolocation device. Contact Cassie Rincon for more information. 


Snapshot Wisconsin

All Seasons | Ongoing

Snapshot Wisconsin is a partnership with the Wisconsin DNR to monitor wildlife year-round using a statewide network of trail cameras. The project provides data for wildlife management decisions. We are looking for volunteers to hike to our trail camera, retrieve the SD card, and review pictures. Training provided. Contact Corinne Palmer for more information. 
Free with membership or admission.
