UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve
UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve permanently protects 4.3 miles of Lake Mendota shoreline and 300 acres of woodlands, wetlands, prairie, including the iconic Picnic Point. It shelters biologically significant plant and animal communities for teaching, research, outreach and environmentally sensitive use, and safeguards beloved cultural landscapes. The Preserve contributes to a powerful sense of place and fosters an ethic of stewardship to promote mutually beneficial relationships between humans and the rest of nature. Support for land stewardship and capital projects is provided through gifts made to the UW Foundation Lakeshore Nature Preserve Stewardship Fund and generous partners including the Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve.
