Visiting Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve

DSC 1113

Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve is spread over 200 acres in beautiful southwestern Wisconsin, in gently-rolling terrain called the Driftless Area which was spared from the last glacial period.  The Preserve features rock outcroppings, prairies, forests, oak savannas, wetlands, springs and a stream.



In April 2022, Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve re-opened for visitors taking part in our events onsite.  We are in Phase One of our re-opening which includes some COVID-19 pandemic mitigation protocols.  Those wishing to visit and take part in events need to register online in advance, be vaccinated, and send proof of vaccination.  Vaccination boosters are recommended but not required. Accommodations may be possible for those who are not presently vaccinated due to age and/or medical conditions. 

We look forward to the time when mutual care and concern for each others' health has borne fruit in the form of minimized spread of COVID, that we may once again welcome Circle Sanctuary Community members and visitors on the land with no restrictions.
