Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve

´╗┐Located along the west shore of the Bay of Green Bay, the L. H. Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve has 920 acres of forest, meadows and wetlands where prehistoric Indian tribes once hunted, fished, and camped. Today this natural area is home and refuge for a wide variety of waterfowl, wildlife, and plant species. Over 9 miles of scenic hiking trails run through the marshes and forests of the preserve. These trails are also groomed for cross country skiing in the winter months. All trails begin and end at the Interpretive Center.

Also located amidst the preserve is the West Shores Interpretive Center, which offers a variety of educational programs throughout the year and gives visitors the opportunity to explore nature up close with exciting hands-on exhibits. The Interpretive Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 12:00-4:00 p.m.
