The Mosquito Hill Nature Center is open year round with both indoor and outdoor opportunities on 430 acres adjacent to the Wolf River. Inside are natural history exhibits, hands-on displays, a gift shop, themed classrooms, meeting rooms, and a library. Find things to do on the event calendar. There are also various school programs available for any grade level.
A trail system for hiking or walking includes three miles of developed trails with a loop to scenic vistas on one of the highest elevation points in the area. The All People’s Trail provides a .6 mile of paved trail for wheelchair access. When the snow season arrives, one un-groomed cross-country skiing trail and five miles of snowshoe trails can provide winter enjoyment.
The nature center's interpretive building and office will be closed on Thursday, November 22 and Friday, November 23 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The building and office will reopen on Saturday, November 24 at 10:00 AM. Trails will remain closed during this time due to the gun deer hunting season.
