Sauk Creek Nature Preserve in Port Washington
A 27-acre preserve located in Port Washington. The creek runs north and south over limestone bedrock ledges and eventually flows into Lake Michigan. Floodplain forest runs along Sauk Creek and a series of wetland/spring seeps discharge water into the creek. Higher land on the eastern half of the property is predominately old agricultural fields, abandoned over 30 years ago and now being colonized by a second growth forest. Trails connect the preserve to local neighborhoods and a bridge allows easy access to the creek. The land is a valuable wildlife corridor and an outstanding resource for community education and recreation. Very popular for fishing.
Identified by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as an ebird hotspot.
