Fischer Creek Conservation Area
This 160-acre site is a new addition to the Manitowoc County Park System. The property lies on both sides of Fischer Creek and is a mix of habitats including old field, lowland forest and shrub-carr. The property runs parallel to Lake Michigan. In spring and fall, thousands of migrating waterfowl can be seen from the bluffs above the lake. There is a system of hiking trails that take you into the interior of the property where you can enjoy Scarlet Tanagers, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, and Broad-winged Hawks.
