The Schmeeckle Preserve Center, located at 2419 Northpoint Drive, is part of the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point (UWSP), and houses the Hall of Fame Gallery for the inductee plaques and monographs. There is also the Conservation History Museum and a meeting room to be used by students, other visitors and other organizations free of charge. All exhibits and the meeting room are owned by the WCHF Foundation, while the remainder of the building is owned by UWSP, which is responsible for operation and maintenance. The arrangement has worked very well, and satisfies both UWSP and WCHF needs. Please plan to stop by and visit this little piece of Wisconsin’s conservation history, and stroll through the many trails offered by the Schmeeckle Preserve.


The WCHF and Schmeeckle Visitor Center includes a sunlit gallery displaying recognition plaques of the inductees.
