Please share your ideas about Mosquito Hill

Post Date:12/04/2018 9:11 AM

To develop its master plan for the Mosquito Hill Nature Center, Outagamie County has released three conceptual alternatives for public review and comment.   Please help us out;  share your views.

The three plans represent different amenities and enhancements that could be developed and/or enhanced as funding and resources become available. They  include a lookout tower, canopy-walk, zip-line, campsites and mountain bike trails.

Plan alternatives were created from input gathered at public meetings, stakeholder focus groups, via park staff, and through an online survey.  For those who were unable to attend the last public input meeting, additional input on the plan alternatives is being gathered through the end of the year. The three concepts are available for viewing and comment at the following site, which provides additional information on where to direct comments.

The Mosquito Hill Nature Center is a year-round destination with indoor and outdoor opportunities, located on 441 acres along the Wolf River, east of New London. It includes natural history exhibits, hands-on displays, a gift shop, themed classrooms, meeting rooms, a library, a trail system with opportunities for hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and many other amenities.  An additional 11 acres at the top of the hill were acquired in 2018, which precipitated the need to initiate a plan.
