With the safety of our community, staff, and volunteers in mind, Pringle Nature Center will be closed to the public until further notice. In the meantime, we are offering a variety of free, family-friendly nature-based activities on our website (see below). The trails of Bristol Woods and other county parks are currently open during regular hours. Please consult the Kenosha County website for up to date information. Time spent in nature has a positive effect on mental well-being, physical fitness, and boosts immune system function, so we strongly encourage the public to continue utilizing Bristol Woods and other parks. The PNC email will still be monitored during this time. Thank you for your understanding, and please contact us with any questions.

Like all small organizations, we are affected by a loss of income and donations during this time. If you believe in our mission of "Putting People in Touch with Nature," please consider making a donation or becoming a member to help us bridge the gap. Thank you for your support!
