Point. Explore this 280-acre conservancy area with 5 miles of trails and
boardwalks, a 24-acre lake, and a large diversity of habitats that

The Reserve is managed to protect and restore natural communities of central Wisconsin, serve as an outdoor classroom for learning, and provide outdoor recreation opportunities.
It is open to the public and serves as a unique gathering place for the community and university.
