Beaver Creek Wildlife Area

The area can be easily reached from Interstate 675 or State Route 35.

The Beaver Creek Wildlife Area consists of a mosaic of wetland types, including shrub swamp, wet meadow, and wooded riparian corridor. The remaining upland areas off of New Germany-Trebein Road have been converted to prairie.The 50-acre freshwater fen is located off of Fairgrounds Road and can be viewed from the boardwalk and observation tower.

Only whitetail deer, waterfowl, and furbearers may be hunted on Beaver Creek Wildlife Area. Trapping is productive in the many wetlands and along Beaver Creek. A special permit is required to trap beaver on wildlife areas. Wood ducks and mallards can be hunted by jump shooting along Beaver Creek. Deer can be found in good numbers throughout the wildlife area.

The Siebenthaler Fen complex is very popular with bird watchers, nature enthusiasts, and school groups, as its unique habitat is a great place to listen for frogs and toads or see migrating birds in the spring and fall. The boardwalk (handicap accessible) and observation tower are great places to observe unusual wildflowers

Facility locations include 2 parking lots, a boardwalk, observation tower, and information kiosk.
