Wild Rivers Interpretive Center
Wild Rivers Interpretive Center houses Florence Co. Forestry and Parks/Wisconsin DNR/ US Forestry, The University of Wisconsin Extension, and WI Dept of Motor Vehicles. All trail information including brochures and maps are available in this facility with questions answered by on site staff. If you should visit when our facility is closed, you will find maps and trail information located outside our building in a covered information section.The Interpretive Center is seen as a focal point for the discussion and promotion of balanced resource utilization. Education and cooperation are the guiding principles for these efforts. Displays communicate that the integrated forest management is essential for a sustained yield of diverse products, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, and to maintain a healthy forest for future generations. The Center presents 10 public Environmental Stewardship Programs per year as well as three Annual Events to promote environmental education. Recently a Nature Naturally program, a supplemental environmental education program, was established by the Friends of the Wild Rivers Interpretive Center to help educate area youth.
