Fall ColorsDid you Know?
You already know that Ozaukee County is a great place to live and work. Did you also know that the county is home to a wealth of natural resources? Our county has over twelve hundred acres of park land and nature preserves,  almost twenty-five hundred acres of recreation land plus 50 designated natural areas encompassing over seven thousand acres. Most of us have visited only a few of these treasures.


The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.
