STORIES about the PRESERVE
Virtual Geocaching: an interactive walk
If you are into the booming app of Geocache and are in the mood for a beautiful hike in nature, this trail is for you. The preserve is a great opportunity for an amazing virtual geocache trail, with great views of Lake Mendota and pieces of the past that not many people know about. My name is Aaron, I am 12 and I decided to take it upon myself to make a great geocaching trail for everyone else, kids and adults alike to enjoy the preserve. I visit here all the time and I always enjoy walking around the preserve. I want other kids my age to enjoy the wonders of the preserve and because Geocaching is so popular I thought making a trail would be a great way to attract Geocachers. I would recommend this trail for anyone who loves nature, adventure and Geocaching.Click here to see main page.

My Photo walk at Frautschi Point
I'm a five year old boy and my grammy gave me a really nice red camera to photograph what I like on our walk. We went after a rainstorm, so I wore my boots. Then she made a book for me from my photos and added the words. Thank you Grammy.
"If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I would ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life." – Rachel Carson
The Preserve is a place where fond memories are made, where people connect to nature, where people learn to love natural things, like plants, birds, views, rocks, insects.
