Welcome !

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.

The location of the facility is just east of New London, Wisconsin in Outagamie County.

Trail System

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 hiking trails will be CLOSED Thursday, December 8 - Sunday, December 11 due to the gun-deer hunt. While hunting is NOT PERMITTED on the nature center grounds, surrounding land owners hunt on their own personal property. The Interpretive Building will remain open during normal business hours.
