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.

|Public Bat Monitoring
Monday, August 22
To assist the DNR with bat research, we will monitor the
nature center property for bat presence. We’ll follow a pre-planned
route around the property recording bat calls and location with an
Anabat detector. Wear closed-toe shoes and long pants/sleeves. Insect
repellent is prohibited as it can damage the equipment. Starting times,
updates or cancellations will be posted each Monday on our Mosquito Hill
Nature Center Facebook page.
|Let’s Take a Walk:
Through the Prairie
Sunday, July 31
1:30 – 2:30 PM
Prairies originally covered much of the Great Plains of the
United States, including a portion of western Wisconsin. The nature
center is home to a 12-acre planted prairie which boasts dozens of
unique plants species as well as animal species that could be found in
the original prairies. We’ll explore the mid-summer plants, their
adaptations and benefits to wildlife.
$3/adult and $2/youth
Registration and payment due July 24
|G3: Little Birds of Prey
Tuesday, August 2
10:00 – 11:00 AM
When we think of birds of prey, many times our images include bald eagles and great horned owls. While both are fantastic predators and majestic birds, our small raptors are equally as impressive. They are fast fliers and incredible hunters. We’ll introduce you to few live little birds of prey and discuss their importance in our natural world.
Registration and payment due one week prior.
