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.
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 is a paved trail (.6 mile one-way) for more accessible wheelchair access. When the snow season arrives, check out our three signed snowshoe trails, one which takes you to the top of Mosquito Hill.
No pets are permitted on the property.

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. The instructor is naturalist Jessica Miller, who is a certified yoga instructor.

BIRD HOUSE WEAVING
Do you love birds? Then weave them a home with your love put into it. This finished piece follows the dimensions of a typical wooden bluebird box, but may attract a variety of backyard bird species if you hang it outdoors. Top it off with a barnboard roof. The class will be taught by Jeni Mursau, Woven Blessings Basketry. Choose from a morning or afternoon session.
Registration and payment are due February 28.
