Lac Lawrann Conservancy
Located in West Bend, this conservancy park is a beautiful and peaceful 104- acre natural area managed for nature study and passive outdoor recreation. The park boasts a bird list of 200 species, as well as 300 species of plants. Located at the confluence of two lobes of the Wisconsin glacier, the park presents several examples of interesting glacial landforms. As the glaciers retreated, they left moraines interspersed with steep-sided kettles formed as blocks of ice in the glacial debris melted. Other classic examples of glacial geology found here include a kame, esker and kettle lakes. There is a self-guided trail system that extends through or alongside tall grass prairie restorations, pine and hardwood forests, lake and wetlands.
Directions: Located at 300 Schmidt Road. Follow Hwy 33 east to Schmidt Road to the park entrance.
