Natural beauty can sometimes be found in unlikely places. That’s what I learned on a hike along Port Washington’s waterfront. An area that was once a place used by ships to unload coal for a power plant has a decidedly different energy today – it’s a Wisconsin nature sanctuary that’s teeming with life, home to birds, butterflies and wildflowers. It’s called the Port Washington Avian Sanctuary, and it’s a hidden gem worth seeking out.
