Navarino State Wildlife Area and Nature Center

This 15,000-acre property is a mix of prairie, woodlands, marshes and flowages. The Wolf and Shioc Rivers shape the character of this landscape that is home to many species of native mammals including badgers, coyotes, porcupines and beavers. A nature center offers visitors educational opportunities and there are programs led by staff naturalists. There are prairie restorations to explore, or enjoy a 47-mile, self-guided auto tour of the property.
Drives through the area in the early evening produce many sightings of deer, or you might hear the call of a Great Horned or Barred Owl.

Directions: From Shawano, go south 5 miles on Cty K to Cty T east 1.3 miles to the hamlet of Lunds, then south 4.5 miles on McDonald Rd to Lindstern Rd east to the nature center.
