    Heckrodt Wetland

    Reserve includes 76

    acres of forested

    wetland, wetland

    meadow, open water,

    and upland field

    communities. The

    wheelchair & stroller-friendly 3+ mile trail

    system includes 2 miles of boardwalk that

    allows access to the wetland without getting

    wet feet! The Reserve is home to a variety of

    mammals, birds, insects, reptiles, and

    amphibians. Facilities include a nature

    center with indoor living wetland and live

    reptiles, amphibians, and fish, as well as

    mounted specimens of Wisconsin mammals

    and bird species. Educational programs are

    provided for schools, daycares, special focus

    groups (pre-school, grade school, scouts, and

    senior citizens), and the general public. Our
