June 27 Wash Island preserve tour

Come explore our beautiful protected lands on Washington Island through a series of naturalist guided walks. Choose one preserve to hike in the morning, and another in the afternoon. With over 800-acres of protected lands on the island, this year’s open house will feature: Domer-Neff Bird Sanctuary led by Jesse Koyen, Sigwald Jacobsen Natural Area led by Terrie Cooper, Little Lake Nature Preserve led by Steve Waldron, and Boo’s Bluff Natural Area led by Terrie Cooper. Bring a bag lunch and we’ll meet at the Washington Island Art and Nature Center for lunch and a free tour of their exhibits.

Participants must provide their own ferry transportation. Participants will receive an Open House map with directions to the property trailheads where each hike will start. Please register even if you only plan to attend in the morning or afternoon. Morning hikes begin at 10:00 am and afternoon hikes begin at 1:30 pm. Wear good hiking boots, bring a bag lunch, water, bug repellent, and a sun hat.

Free • Open to public

Leader: Terrie Cooper, Jesse Koyen, Steve Waldron, and Karen Yancey
