Peshtigo Harbor Wildlife Area Trails

A haven of roughly 5,700 acres of state-owned lands are located along the Lower Peshtigo River, south of Peshtigo, Wisconsin. It includes the Peshtigo Harbor State Wildlife Area, and the Bloch Oxbow State Natural Area. The area is managed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to enhance wildlife habitat, protect natural communities, and provide nature-based recreation.

The Peshtigo Harbor Wildlife Area Trails were made possible through a grant from the Wisconsin Coastal Management Project. Marinette County Land & Water Conservation Division, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and Marinette County UW-Extension used the grant to develop better access, a variety of low-impact trails, and supporting educational materials to reveal the rich history and natural communities of this area.
