Wyalusing State Park and Wyalusing Walnut Forest State Natural Area

Located at the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers, Wyalusing is one of the best places along the river for birding. The 2,628-acre park offers a diversity of habitat that attracts many bird species. Within the park,
Wyalusing Walnut Forest State Natural Area lies on the north face of a 500 foot-high bluff overlooking the two rivers. The forest contains two nearly pure stands of black walnut trees, and spectacular spring wildflower displays.
