The 1000 Islands Environmental Center provides the public with a place to enjoy our natural resources. Recreation is provided by the many miles of trails, which can be used for hiking and snowshoeing. Year-round educational programs teach children and adults the importance of the inter-relationships between them and the environment.

Some of the events and programs offered by the Center include Eagle Days, a Moonlight Snowshoe Hike, a Spring Art Fair, Pancake and Porkie Breakfast with the Kaukauna Kiwanis, Bird House and Feeder building, Campfire and Summer Night Hike, Crayfish and Critter Hunts along with many other nature-inspired classes and events. 1000 Islands also rents out snowshoes during the winter months.

The Center offers school field trips/programs and scouting clinics for school-age children along with numerous adult and senior programming. Call our Naturalist to create a program specific to your needs.
