You are invited to “Come Explore” Day at the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve

September 20 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm; Free and open to the public

Join us at the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve, located within the city limits, for hiking and activities for people of all ages. Preserve hosts will be available to talk about the history and ecology of the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve. Choose your own adventure! A variety of trails afford both longer and shorter hike options and offer views of the canal and Lake Michigan, and forays beneath towering hemlocks or along the ridge and swale formations of ancient shorelines. A children’s activity booklet will be available free for young hikers, and an explorer’s pack may be borrowed for those kids who would like to take a closer look. If you’ve never been to the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to explore an amazing place. Hike will be held rain or shine.

No advance registration is necessary. Come to the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve anytime between 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. The Preserve trailhead is located at 5200 Lake Lane.
