The Library Nature Park offers a variety of educational and recreational opportunities. It can be considered an outdoor version of learning and relaxation provided inside the library building and its diverse nature will be of interest to a broad spectrum of people. The Park is located back of the Sherman & Ruth Weiss Community Library.

This project was funded by local contributors and a Stewardship Grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. All work was done by volunteers.

A walking trail approximately ½ mile long is available for a walk through the forest and around a small pond and wet land. Benches are placed along the trail for rest and relaxation and a place to sit and listen to the birds and enjoy the surrounding environment.

Kiosks along the trail provide information about things you will see along the trail. Included is the geology and history of the area, birds that may be sighted, the life cycle of the forest, the role of wetlands and some of the amphibians that inhabit them.

An observation pier in the pond and wetland allows viewing of aquatic plants. The pier has benches that provide a unique place to sit and view the surroundings and enjoy the diversity of plants and trees in the Park.

An outdoor classroom is available for seminars and presentations.
