Welcome to “Nature at The Confluence”, an initiative to transform the area of land where Turtle Creek meets the Rock River into a community space that celebrates the natural and historical signifigance of the land. Partners in this initiative include Beloit 2020, City of South Beloit, City of Beloit, Be Active Outdoors, and other community groups and organizations. All are welcome to become involved in this initiative.
Located halfway along the newly designated national Rock River Trail, this land has been used and explored by humans for more than 13,000 years. Ancient hunters, native American mound-builders, French fur traders and today’s river explorers have all traversed the waters and lands of this area. This history of the space along the banks of the Turtle Creek and Rock River make the Confluence an appropriate site to tell a very important story about urban ecology. It has the potentional to serve as a wonderful outdoor recreation and adventures for area families and students.
We invite you to explore these pages to learn more about this initiative.
