Nature At The Confluence

Connecting People With Nature

Nature At The Confluence is a new urban environmental center that opened in 2017. We invite you to stop in for a visit to discover nature right in the middle of an urban area! We’re located on 100 acres surrounded by the Rock River, Turtle Creek and Kelly Creek, and you’ll find scenic beauty during every season.

The campus offers a 5-acre prairie restoration, learning gardens, pollinator gardens and we have programs throughout the year for all ages and interests! We host monthly Drum Circles and Cameras At The Confluence photography meetups.

2019 Season Highlights

Kečąk: We Once Lived Here | The Ho-Chunk At Ke-Chunk Village |  2019 Learning Series

At the confluence of Turtle Creek and the Rock River there once was a very large Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) settlement called Ke-Chunk (Kečąk) or Turtle village. The Ho-Chunk lived all along Turtle Creek until 1832. “We Once Lived Here: The Ho-Chunk at Ke-Chunk Village” series features over 12 programs for families and children that highlights the culture and heritage of historic and contemporary Native American Indians.

Find all kinds of Adventures In The 100 Acre Woods

Adventures In the 100 Acre Woods programs are inspired by the beloved Winnie the Pooh stories by Author A.A. Milne. Milne brought the adorable, honey-loving bear to life in his stories which also featured his son, Christopher Robin.

The theme will also be woven into features on the grounds such as Duffy’s Children’s Garden’s 100 Acre Woods theme, The Big Story Tree, Rabbit’s Vegetable Garden, Pooh’s Thoughtful Spots, Build A House For Eeyore, and a life-sized metal sculpture of Christopher Robin. The programs will have an emphasis on reading, literacy, healthy lifestyles, stewardship and outdoor activity.

Free outdoor screening of the adorable new “Christopher Robin” movie will be held on Friday, Aug 9!
