Our mission: The Baird Creek Preservation Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission
is to facilitate the preservation and restoration of the Baird Creek Greenway and Watershed in
order to enhance its value as an ecological, recreational, and educational
resource for generations to come.
Registration is open for a hands-on environmental exploration where kiddos ask questions about the natural world, uncover evidence at their fingertips, and draw conclusions based on personal experience.Learn more

Our Vision: our daily focus is to create a quality natural greenway that can be used and enjoyed by everyone. We envision more and improved hiking, biking and ski trails throughout the greenway, pristine habitat for wildlife and pollinators, restoration work to expand areas for exploration and education opportunities, adding acres to the greenway, protecting the creek, tackling erosion and so much more.
Our long-term goals include connecting to the Wisconsin Ice Age Trail, providing trail access to Door and Kewaunee Counties, the opportunity to explore connections to local nature trails such a Mahon Creek, Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary and Cofrin Arboretum, as well as purchasing and protecting additional greenway and Baird Creek Watershed acreage.
Thanks to our dedicated trail crew and volunteers, we are able to continually improve the 14 miles of public trails for hiking, biking, skiing, orienteering, etc
We actively enrich and restore our preserves, balancing the needs of nature and her visitors as well as undertake restoration initiatives intended to protect and improve habitat for rare, threatened, and endangered species
We are continuously looking to purchase additional acreage or work with landowners to protect land in the Baird Creek Watershed through various options; purchases, programs, conservation easements, and more. We know if we own it, it is protected forever. Plus, we can then share our preservation areas with visitors like you!
We hold various volunteer events, public hikes, an annual banquet, and an annual 5K to name a few! We are always looking for interested community members to assist with field trips, invasive species cutting days, planning events, and being involved in coming up with more great community involvement ideas!
It’s always better to have class outside. That’s why we provide many educational opportunities, emphasizing exploration in nature and scientific investigation.
