Seno Woodland Education Center


New Barn Roof A "Go"

Seno Center Barn

Thanks to all who donated, a new roof will go on the Education Center barn this fall. With donations totaling over $65,000 the Board authorized the remaining funds necessary to complete the project. Replacing the roof and sealing the soffits is essential to moving the resident bats to a new location. Ron Rasmussen, coordinator for the project, said “We cannot delay any longer in getting the barn roof repaired before serious damage is done to the structure.”

Dr. Elvia Seno

The Seno Woodland Education Center is 131 acres of forest, fields, prairie and wetlands located in southeast Wisconsin's rolling kettle morraine country.

The goals of The Center are:
     •To provide educational opportunities for educators, students, landowners and the general public, and,
     •To demonstrate sustainable management of forest and related resources.

Dr. Elvira Seno wished her beloved "Slippery Slopes" tree farm to become a place for children to learn about trees and nature. Dr. Seno passed away in November 1996. In her last year she saw her dream fulfilled as buses full of children came to learn about forests and nature on her beautiful farm.

Drumlin Farm

The 84.5 acre Drumlin Farm, just 2 miles from the Seno Center, was donated to the WWOA Foundation in 2006 by Dr. Shirley Peterson. (Follow the link above to learn more about Dr. Peterson and her beloved farm.) Her gift gives us additional natural diversity of habitiats and new opportunities for natural resouces education.
