Once a farm for the Schlitz Brewery draft horses, Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is Milwaukee’s comprehensive nature center. Offering six miles of trails that take visitors through 185 acres of forests, wetlands, restored prairies, ravines, bluffs and a shoreline. You will see evidence of our active and progressive management of the land, restoring habitats unique to our region and reclaiming our bountiful natural history.

Conveniently located just north of the city on Lake Michigan, we provide the full experience of nature throughout all seasons. With leading experiential, environmental education for people of all ages, Schlitz Audubon is both a destination for adventure and an oasis from the busyness of life. Schlitz Audubon is a designated Important Bird Area because of the habitat provided by the lake for certain waterfowl. We are also a birding hot spot because of our location within a migratory flyway.
