Bruemmer County Park
This county park is home to Winter Wrens and Pileated Woodpeckers. It is a mix of habitat including grasslands, scrub forest, and hardwood forest. The Kewaunee River meanders within the park, providing habitat for many species of river-loving birds. A trail system accesses the park’s varied terrain. The park is a peaceful refuge that can produce a large number of avian species, especially during spring and fall migrations. A drive along the western side of the property leads to the Buzz Besadny Anadromous Fish Facility. Hiking trails can be found near the hatchery parking lot to access the Kewaunee River.
Directions: From Hwy 42 in Kewaunee, take Hwy 29 to Co. F west, following County Park signs to the property.
