Bubolz Nature Preserve
This 758-acre nature preserve has eight miles of wildlife viewing trails that access fields and a large wetland area, all of which was once a cedar swamp.The earth sheltered nature center offers guided tours, workshops, classes and programs hosted by staff naturalists. Watch for Bobolinks and Meadowlarks as you hike the grassy fields in the summer. In the fall, look for low-flying Northern Harriers hunting for small mammals. An evening walk through the preserve may produce white-tailed deer or a red fox.
