Where Land and Water Meet – Tour of Lulu Lake


Lulu Lake Preserve protects a wide variety of aquatic and terrestrial habitats. Water features like springs, streams and lakes wind through prairies, oak savanna and sedge meadows. The preserve is also home to those beautiful “in between” places, wetlands. Our Southeast Wisconsin Land Steward Jerry Ziegler will lead a short hike through the preserve to view the features and discuss how TNC protects this varied landscape. The hike will be followed by light refreshments and a display introducing members to the newest addition to the preserve: a 90-acre parcel with abundant springs and cold-water streams.

Limit 25 participants. Please RSVP to Deb Bacon ( by Monday, August 19.

What to Bring/Wear: Dress for the weather. You may want to bring water, a hat, sunscreen, bug repellent. Wear sturdy walking shoes.

Directions: Meet at The Nature Conservancy’s Lulu Lake Preserve parking lot. From Troy Center in Walworth County, take Nature Road 1.5 miles north. Turn right at a driveway marked N9564 – this is a private road leading to the preserve.
