Heckrodt Wetland Reserve

Three miles of trails, including nearly 4,000 feet of elevated boardwalks, provide access to the wetland habitat to all visitors to explore and enjoy bird watching, walking, photography, and snowshoeing in winter. Wagons and strollers are available for check out to increase visitor enjoyment of the hiking trails. Wheelchairs are available for visitors who may need assistance.

Heckrodt Wetland Reserve is a 76-acre urban nature reserve with habitats including forested wetland, cattail marsh, open water, created prairie, open field, and upland forest. The 4,000 square foot Nature Center features a "Living Waters" exhibit with an indoor live wetland and aquariums that are home to local fishes, crayfish, turtles, and snakes - surrounded by a display of mounted Wisconsin mammals and birds. Outdoor exhibits include a memorial butterfly garden and bird feeding area, as well as a pond, bog and stream complex. The Nature Center facilities feature a workshop/meeting room, a classroom amphitheater/Discovery Den, Solarium, and a resource library.
