From Urban Wilderness Explorers: Schoofs Preserve is a 51-acre property owned by Ozaukee Washington Land Trust (OWLT). It contains a diversity of habitats and a wealth of wildlife. Because the preserve has only a tiny parking area, we have been offered the opportunity to park and also hike in the adjacent property, Heiliger Huegel Ski Club. Thanks to the staff of OWLT for arranging it.
As a special treat, OWLT staff members will be on hand to lead our hike and provide information about the preserve.
This is a winter walk on woodland trails. Please be prepared for wintry conditions like ice if it's very cold or slush if it warms.
