Located just outside of Eau Claire is a Nature Reserve that has existed in one form or another since 1947.

Beaver Creek Reserve has 400 acres with nearly nine miles of hiking trails. Bordered by the Eau Claire River and with two small streams running through, there’s a wide array of habitats throughout the Reserve that are home to all kinds of different flora and fauna.

In addition to the hiking trails, there’s a Nature Center, a Citizen Science Center, a seasonal Butterfly House as well as a youth camp, an obstacle course, a charter school and Hobbs Observatory.

There’s so much to see, do and learn at Beaver Creek!
