Sauk Creek Nature Preserve
Located in Port Washington, WI, the Sauk Creek Nature Preserve is 27 acres. The creek runs north and south over limestone bedrock ledges and eventually flows into Lake Michigan near the Port Washington Marina. Floodplain forest runs along Sauk Creek and a series of wetland/spring seeps discharge water into the creek. Higher land on the eastern half of the property is predominately old agricultural fields, abandoned over 30 years ago and now being colonized by a second growth forest. Trails connect the preserve to local neighborhoods and a bridge allows easy access to the creek. The land is a valuable wildlife corridor and an outstanding resource for community education and recreation. Visit this preserve to hike, bird watch, or fish. Pets on leash welcome.
