Muskego-Norway Outdoor classroom sign dedication

Outdoor classroom at Muskego-Norway School District

Roughly 5 years in development, this space opens up an outdoor classroom for the Muskego School District. Positioned between the southern edge of the athletic facilities and the city’s Engel Preserve, the project reclaimed 12 acres of unused wetlands. 

The process included several killings and removal of invasive vegetation. Drain tile was used to control the large amount of water into 2 pond areas. Swamp white oak trees were planted.  The high school science club did several seed collections from the Engel Preserve, which were used to restore vegetation natural to the area.  Paths have been cut through the area. There have also been several Boy Scout Eagle and Girl Scout Gold projects to enhance the projected use by District students.
Thanks to the Muskego Norway School District, the City of Muskego, US Fish & Wildlife in the assistance of this project.
