About Us

The Welty Environmental Center offers year-round programs for all ages. Notices of activities are published here on our website, our Facebook page as well as our periodic newsletter, The Warbler, available via email or regular mail.

The center is a place where both children and adults can gain hands-on encounters with biological, physical, and chemical elements of nature. It provides a challenge to its users to relate concepts of the natural and social sciences and humanities to environmental, ecological, and related social concerns. Our programs stimulate interest in local, regional, and global environmental issues.

Wisconsin has mandated that environmental education be part of all K-12 curricula. In support of the state’s requirements, the Welty center offers programming for school classes, as well as professional development opportunities for teachers. All program offerings are listed here on the website.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide leadership in environmental and ecological education to students, teachers and individuals of all ages so that the residents of this region can make informed decisions leading to the respect for and the enjoyment, preservation and sustainable use of our natural resources.
