woodland of wonder - Wisconsins First Preserve - The Story of South Woods Park Association

Project type

Documentary Short, Local History




Ripon, WI

In the southwest corner of Ripon, you can find a woodland to heal your soul and inspire your mind. It's a special place with an unsung legacy in history of Wisconsin conservation.

In 1902, before the establishment of the National Park Service, a group of concerned citizens came together to create Wisconsin's first preserve, South Woods. Hear how the community
saved the woods from the saw. See what makes South Woods biologically significant. Identify the changes and challenges facing the woods and hear how the woods has impacted generations
of people in Ripon.
