Point Creek Conservation Area is part of the Manitowoc County Park System, located in the Town of Centerville in the southeastern portion of Manitowoc County on County Road LS and 1/2 mile south of County Road F. Manitowoc County took ownership of the property in June, 2002 and has a conservation easement with the Glacial Lakes Conservancy. Funds for the purchase price of $1.9 million were provided by the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program, Wisconsin Coastal Management Grant, and other generous private donations. The purpose of the conservation easement is to preserve the area’s natural and scenic attributes and provide access for public use. The intent of the conservation easement is to actively manage the area to become One Ecological Unit with the mature Northern Hardwood Forest on the south side of the creek, which is owned by University of Wisconsin Green Bay (UWGB) and is known as Kingfisher Farm Natural Area.
