The Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve inspires people to connect to and care for the Lakeshore Nature Preserve. Stretching from the Eagle Heights Natural Area to Picnic Point and the Lakeshore Path, the Preserve is a jewel of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, distinguishing it as one of the most beautiful in the country. The Preserve is open to the public.
Please see our Mission and Goals and join us in caring for the Preserve. We invite you to explore the Preserve on this web site and in person, and attend Volunteer Days and Field Trips.
Among the university student organizations, the Sierra Club's Wisconsin John Muir Chapter has become involved with the Preserve through volunteer work in Muir Woods. Student representatives also serve on the Board of the Friends and are appointed annually to the Preserve Committee.
For an Interactive Map of the Preserve, information on research and UW classes that use the Preserve, obtaining permits, the Preserve Master Plan and other topics, be sure to check the extensive
