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 art gallery, themed classrooms, meeting rooms, and a library. Outside is a butterfly house that's open July through August and an observatory which is used during scheduled events. Find things to do on the event calendar or the Thrivent Art Gallery schedule. 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.
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.

9:30 – 11:00 AM
Our speaker, Ryan Koenigs, is the Winnebago sturgeon biologist for the Wisconsin DNR. His presentation will delve into how the Winnebago Sturgeon Management Plan became the gold-standard for sturgeon management world-wide. Years of extensive study to determine their spawning, movement and feeding behaviors, and accurate data on mortality and growth rates have resulted in the world’s largest naturally reproducing population of lake sturgeon.
