Kurtz Woods Natural Area in Grafton
This 45-acre State Natural Area is owned and managed by the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust. The preserve contains more than 82 species of trees including sugar maple, American beech, white ash, basswood and black cherry. An assortment of spring wildflowers shares the forest floor with shrubs and young trees. These include hepatica, bloodroot, wild leek and the aptly named spring beauty.
Designated as a State Natural Area because of its diversity and quality. The terrain is lightly rolling because a sandy moraine runs through it. Kettle depressions and glacial boulders also can be seen.
Identified by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as an ebird hotspot.
The two entrances to the natural area are a little hard to find as they are narrow paths between subdivision houses. Check the trail map.
