Great Swamp Experience

The Great Swamp Experience is a brand-new interactive exhibit located downstairs in the Somerset County Environmental Education Center!

The exhibit features interactive displays, vignettes, taxidermy, and archaeological artifacts highlighting the history and ecology of the Great Swamp.

Visiting children can crawl into a beaver lodge, feel animal fur, or explore the toddler area. Adults can explore habitat vignettes, and learn about flora and fauna found in the swamp’s river, meadows, ponds, marshes, and forests.

Historical exhibits include information about the Wisconsin Glacier, mastodon bones, Paleo-Indians, and Lord Stirling.

The Great Swamp Experience is open to the public 7 days a week from 9am to 4:30pm, and admission is free.
