Youth Activities

The Outdoor Heritage Education Center (OHEC) will have their Touch of the Wild trailers and Mammals of Wisconsin touch tables on display.

OHEC’s exhibits include dozens of mounted animals, furs and feathers, from Wisconsin and elsewhere. Visitors can touch a life-size wolf, tiger, bear, coyote, beaver, otter, fish and many other wildlife species. Educational signage and quizzes share facts and information for attendees to gain knowledge of the outdoors world.

Outdoor Heritage Education Center (OHEC) mission is to increase the public’s understanding, appreciation, and sense of stewardship for natural resources, professional resource management and America’s outdoor heritage, including related activities like fishing, hunting and other shooting sports. We connect youth and adults to the outdoors and natural resources.

We understand how this benefits people, families and society. Healthy, active outdoor lifestyles and a connection to nature is good for the individual and for the environment.
