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, an 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.
Yoga Basics I Tuesdays, September 5, 12, 19 & 26 6:00 – 7:00 PM
Are you new to yoga? These classes are for the true beginner or someone that wants a slower, gentler practice. We will focus on proper alignment and breathing techniques and use props like straps, blocks and the wall to help ease into and hold poses. Open to everyone with the ability to move through seated, standing, kneeling and reclined positions. Please bring a yoga mat, towel and water. We have a very limited supply of mats and yoga props (blocks/straps).
Cost: $25 for all 4 classes or $8/class Advance registration appreciated, but walk-ins also welcome.
