ABOUT THE SITE: The UWM at Waukesha Field Station is home to a beautifully restored prairie/oak savannah, a variety of forestland, an ephemeral pond, Henrietta Lake and Scuppernong Creek. Visitors will enjoy walking the 3.5 miles of mowed hiking trails, as well as boardwalks over wetland areas. The unique wood-fired kiln and the Wildlife in Need Center make it a truly amazing educational destination. This will be the first time the annual meeting will be hosted at this site. The field station was recently highlighted on Outdoor Wisconsin. View the segment here.
