Riveredge Nature Center

Riveredge Nature Center

With over 400 acres of wild Wisconsin, ten miles of trails, year-round educational programming, and special events, the opportunity for outdoor fun at Riveredge is endless! Explore and rejuvenate!

Wild Wisconsin is closer than you imagine. Lose yourself in one of the most beautifully restored natural sanctuaries in southeastern Wisconsin. With prairies, woods, ponds, and over one mile of Milwaukee River shoreline, you’ll always have something new to explore at Riveredge.

Riveredge is more than a nature center. Its legacy as a pioneer in the areas of land restoration, research, and inquiry-based education throughout Wisconsin serve as strong foundation to its future initiatives. Today, Riveredge is redefining the role of the nature center in the community by empowering and supporting communities to live in harmony with their natural environment in a way that encourages exploration, adventure, and fun.

The current fees for Non-Members are: Adults: $4.00 Children ages 4—13: $2.00 Children 3 & Under: Free Family: $12.00 All non-member trail users (hikers, skiers, and snowshoers) should purchase a trail pass at the visitor center or by using our pay envelopes found at the front door to the visitor center and at trailheads.
