Mequon Nature Preserve
This site is a 438 acre area in the City of Mequon preserved forever for the enjoyment of nature. Among its features is a pre-European settlement beech and maple forest, a working farm, a recently restored wetland and an observation tower. Additionally, MNP has the 12,000 sq. ft. Peiper Power Educational Center dedicated to the study of the environment. The Center offers classrooms, large meeting and display areas and space for scientific programs. The improved trails are ideal for snowshoeing, hiking, and bird watching. Work continues to remove invasive species and replant hardwood trees on the property. MNP will serve as a haven for wildlife and people for years to come.
