Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve is a 920+ acre preserve on the western shore of Green Bay consisting of forest, meadows and wetlands. The grounds were once home to Native American tribes where they would hunt and fish. Today, this natural area is a refuge for a wide variety of waterfowl, wildlife and plant species.
The marsh and forest have over nine miles of scenic hiking trails that are also groomed for cross country skiing in the winter months. All trails begin and end at the Interpretive Center.
The West Shores Interpretive Center offers a variety of educational programing and exciting hands-on exhibits. The newest addition to the outdoor programming is adventure kayaking, with trips for the beginner through advanced paddlers.
