AGM Nature Preserve

A research and teaching opportunity is available for instructors and students at UW Oshkosh (all three campuses): the AGM Nature Preserve in Waupaca County. It has been made available to us by Helen and Ed Adams and offers possibilities for research and outdoor instruction on their historic farm and surrounding lands. The land includes 80 acres of wooded property, a pond, a limestone ledge, and a small cave. In addition, there is 70 acres with 4 patches of prairie, wetlands, shallow water dikes and spruce plantations. The property was an active dairy farm and has been in the managed forestry program for 50 years.

Consider field trips for your classes or collaborative research projects for you and your students. Plan a visit now!
