About this site

The tower is a favorite spot for our visitors and students on field trips. It is the highest point on the preserve and it allows visitors to view the entire preserve. This helps people get a birds-eye view of the place! The founders of MNP had an observation tower in their Master Plan, as they wanted a place where visitors can see the preserve as a whole and watch the land heal. It wasn’t until a local women who wanted a gift for all the teachers that taught her kids that made this happen. Today, it remains an icon for Mequon Nature Preserve and an important place for our education staff to teacher the thousands of students annually!
