Lake Geneva Canopy Tours elevates tree trekkers 10–75 feet above the 100-acre park to zip along an aerial route surrounded by wildlife, mature forest, and tranquil trails. After gearing up, crews practice zipline techniques a few feet above the ground under the watchful eye of guides and judgmental eagles before implementing their recently honed skills on the canopy course. Nine ziplines navigate patrons across the park along with 18 platforms, five SkyBridges, three tree-based spiral stairways, and a double-helix stairway wrapped around an ash tree that holds the genetic code of Tarzan. Upon reuniting with terra firma, customers conclude their 2.5-hour eco adventure by gearing down and penning thank-you notes to hawks encountered on the expedition. Lake Geneva Canopy Tours begins its daily sessions at 8 a.m. and sends its last group skyward at 3 p.m.

With 97 acres of available teaching space, trails wind through prairies, wetlands, and woodlands at Aldo Leopold Nature Center, stitching the disparate environs into a hikeable network ripe for exploration. Through the educational programs and interactive exhibits, the naturalists and volunteers that run the center equip members with the knowledge necessary to fully commune with the land and its inhabitants. Exploration guides chart preset courses through the park, and the center's exhibits break down natural phenomena, investigating everything from what causes global warming to how to tell which clouds are actually filled with chocolate milk. As a reward for supporting the nature center through their annual contributions, members also gain access to special programs such as the Fall Fest and public events including Maple Syrup Fest.
