Located along the Milwaukee River in the Town of Grafton, Bratt Woods is 17 acres. In addition to bordering the Milwaukee River this preserve contains mature oak, maple, and American beech trees all in gorgeous upland hardwood forests. The forest and the river benefit the migrating birds that need a place to rest. Eventually, the hope is that Bratt Woods will revert back to its original mature beech and maple forest character. To accomplish this, OWLT staff and volunteers removed and continue to remove invasive species, built and now maintain trails and generally oversee that the preserve is “public ready.” Visit this preserve to hike, bird watch, fish or cross country ski.
