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. 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.

Monday evenings, July 6 – August 24

To assist the DNR with bat research, we will monitor the
nature center property for bat presence. Join us each Monday evening
(weather-dependent) for a hike 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. Updates/cancellations will be posted each Monday on our
Facebook page (Mosquito Hill Nature Center).
No monitoring on Aug 3 or 10
