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

Some of the programs offered by the Center include Eagle Days, 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, and many nature inspired classes and events.

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