Get Outside: Heckrodt

This week, I decided to write about another local beauty: Heckrodt Wetland Reserve in Menasha, Wis. Heckrodt is likely unfamiliar to many of you, but its uniqueness comes from being a “76-acre urban nature reserve with habitats including forested wetland, cattail marsh, open water, created prairie, open field and upland forest. Persisting despite the urbanization that continues to grow around it, the Reserve is home to numerous species of reptiles, amphibians and mammals. Migrating songbirds and waterfowl nest and feed in its protection” (Heckrodt’s website).
