Join Us in Restoring our Land at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center
If you’d like to spend time outdoors helping to conserve and restore our diverse landscape, consider becoming a Volunteer Land Steward.
Volunteers aged 14 and older can participate throughout the year, helping us restore and improve the natural habitat for plants and animals on our beautiful 185 acres of land on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Volunteers assist with removing invasive species, planting, weeding, maintaining hiking trails, learning about invasive species and planting habitat for native species, and more.
Two very large habitat restoration efforts will continue in spring, and include planting native seedlings, shrubs, and trees. This is an opportunity to have a lasting effect on our land for generations to come.
Volunteer Land Stewards and staff members work on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:00am - 12:00pm. Volunteers choose what schedule works for them, and no experience is necessary. This is a great group volunteer activity as well.

Schlitz Audubon Nature Center offers a wide range of educational programs for toddlers through senior citizens. Schlitz Audu bon’s sustainable Gold LEED certified Educational Center is situated on 185 acres along the shores of Lake Michigan, just 10 miles north of downtown Milwaukee. We have 6 miles of trails for hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and a 60-foot observation tower overlooking Lake Michigan. The nature preserve encompasses nearly all landforms and ecological communities that occur in southeastern Wisconsin, including the lakeshore, woodlands, marshes, prairies, bluffs, ponds and ravines.
Schlitz Audubon is an independent, locally supported partner of National Audubon Society. We work together in the areas of environmental education and avian conservation.
