We work with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to organize and fund supplemental park programs, projects and events.
To enhance the Parks’ natural environment and engage visitors through recreation, education, and conservation.
•Willow River Nature Center
•Year-round educational and recreational programming/events for visitors of all ages
•Interpretive, stewardship and citizen science projects
•Equipment/machinery purchases for park maintenance and trail development
•Year-round volunteer opportunities
How Do We Do It?:
•Fundraising & Grants
•School Field Trips & Outreach Programs
•Canoe, Kayak & Snowshoe Rentals

We Can’t Do It Alone!
We’re working hard to raise awareness of our small nonprofit, so we can gain additional support, expand our staff and build a new Nature Center that will allow for more educational and recreational programming, community-use, interpretive exhibits and more!
