Cedarburg Enviromental Study Area-OWLT: Open Dawn to Dusk
When caching out here over a year ago, I couldn't help noticing all the ant mounds as I walked along the trails. If there is such a thing as a haven for ants, this is it.
As its name connotes, study of the natural world is the primary purpose of the site. The OWLT is cooperating with the Cedarburg School District on using the land as an outdoor classroom for science students. Two OWLT board members are working with district science teachers to design educational programs and student projects. CESA is a nearly 40 acre tract of ponds, wetlands, and forest located in the town of Cedarburg. It serves as a refuge for a large variety of wildlife species in a rapidly developing area of Ozaukee County. In addition there is a 3 acre man-made pond. The environment provides homes to numerous water fowl and amphibians. The pine and spruce trees create excellent roosts for other wildlife. On the western side of the property is a 12 acre lowland hardwood forest which floods every spring.
