About POPE Farm Conservancy
Come out to Pope Farm Conservancy and get acquainted with a wonderful Town of Middleton treasure! The Pope Farm Conservancy is a unique setting with the focus on learning about the land, past and present. Walk over grassy and limestone trails and learn about the local archaeology, farming, geology and natural history. This is one of the highest elevated plateaus in our area, feeding three distinct watersheds. The story of this land and the people involved should delight and inspire you.
The view from the top of the hill is spectacular, from the flowering prairies to the view of Lake Mendota and the Capitol. In season, you will walk among the sunflower and corn fields planted to enhance the educational experience. Erosion is always a farming concern, and you can visit the Spillway built by the Civilian Conservation Corp which has saved the North Slope from serious damage.
Please wear close toed shoes and dress for the weather, which is usually windy and more extreme than the surrounding area."
