Welcome!

The Mosquito Hill Nature Center is open year round with both indoor and outdoor opportunities on 441 acres adjacent to the Wolf River. Inside are natural history exhibits, hands-on displays, a 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 is a paved trail (.6 mile one-way) for more accessible wheelchair access. When the snow season arrives, check out our bottomland hardwood forest on five miles of snowshoe trails, and a one-mile upland route ending with a vigorous climb to the top of Mosquito Hill.

No pets are permitted on the property.

Yin Yoga
Tuesdays,
October 1, 8, 15, 22
6:
00 - 7:00 PM

Yin yoga consists of a series of poses that mainly work the connective tissues in the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady stretch. These passive poses are held for up to five minutes with the aid of straps, blocks, bolsters and other yoga props. This is a slow-paced class appropriate for those with the ability to move through seated, standing, kneeling and reclined positions.

$25/4-week class or $8/session

Pay in advance or walk-ins welcome.
