Natural surroundings enhance the beauty of Evergreen.
Our beautiful 35-acre campus is located in a pleasant residential neighborhood bordering Sawyer Creek in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This natural setting includes our own Oak Savannah woodland–a rare ecosystem of open woodland consisting primarily of oak and hickory trees, plus over 40 species of native plants. It’s an extraordinary natural resource for Evergreen residents to enjoy right in their backyard.
