Riveredge Nature Center WI

Riveredge Nature Center was one of the first and today is one of the largest nature centers in southeastern Wisconsin. It consists of 370 acres of natural sanctuary - prairies, forests, ponds and marshes along the Milwaukee River. Established in January 1968, the Riveredge Nature Center works to inspire, inform and enable responsible environmental decision-making. We do this by: providing leadership in environmental education for people of all ages about their interrelationship with the earth and its plant and animal life; preserving the earth's natural sanctuary; serving as a regional resource for scientific research; and integrating sustainability concepts and practices into its programming to inspire people to live within the limitations of natural systems.
