Event Link

Join Kettle Moraine Land Trust (KMLT) for an afternoon of brews and views with your friends and neighbors. Enjoy the scenic and botanical beauties of the preserve. Guided interpretive tours will be available, led by KMLT’s Rory Klick. Snacks, fresh beverages, and surprises are to be found upon the trail. Learn about the glacial heritage and native flora, or simply hike on your own to discover what nature has to offer.

Throughout the region, the month of October has been recognized as “Oaktober” in celebration of our most iconic native tree species. And Octoberfest has long been celebrated—in both September and October—as a beer-brewing holiday season. Kick off the autumn festivities at Oaktoberfest 2023!
