Planning a field trip
You must preregister to participate in a guided program at a state park, forest or education center. You and your students are always welcome to visit state lands on your own, but we recommend you call first to ask questions and let the staff know you are coming.
Follow the links to park and forest web pages to find out about winterized facilities, shelters, bathrooms, trail conditions and accessibility. Staff will send directions, maps and more specific information if you ask.
This teachers' guide was produced under a 2001-2002 grant from the Wisconsin Environmental Education Board. To get more information or comment on this teachers' guide, please contact people listed on the specific park and forest pages.
