Lakeshore Nature Preserve

Walk along one of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus’s most breathtaking features. The Lakeshore Nature Preserve is a 300-acre outdoor teaching and research laboratory that stretches for over 4 miles on the south shore of Lake Mendota. A designated Wisconsin Important Bird Area, it protects woodlands, wetlands, prairie, and savannah. Used for thousands of years beginning with Indigenous mound builders, it is now in service to faculty, students and thousands of community members as a place of learning and calm retreat.
