Treasures of Oz

S Bence

For the last half dozen years, a group of dedicated conservation advocates have showcased preserved parcels scattered around Ozaukee County.

This Saturday, June 20, scientists and naturalists will be on hand to guide visitors at seven designated "Treasures of Oz."

Ulao Creek is a 9-mile-long tributary of the Milwaukee River.  It headwaters in the city of Port Washington and the town of Grafton and flows south into Mequon.
