Welcome to the Menominee County/Nation University of Wisconsin Extension!
The coterminous boundary of Menominee County/Reservation delineates 235,000 acres total, 233,000 of these acres in trust status. 217,000 acres are in commercially forested lands – the majority of which is under sustainable forestry management practices. It is home to four unincorporated rural communities, to include Native Americans and non-native residents who live on fee land.
Flowing wildly through Menominee land, the Wolf River is known for its waterfalls and pristine waters. Lakes and wetlands are integral to the landscape. Menominee is rich with the Native tradition of respect for the land.
Visitors are always welcome.
