Explore with the experts
Twenty-nine field trips highlight great outdoor experiences spring through fall throughout Wisconsin.
Where do those in the know go when they want to see plants and animals, and experience Wisconsinís outdoor treasures? Let the Natural Resources Foundation show you!
The Foundation offers an amazing array of field trips so you can explore the state at an affordable rate. With DNR experts and professional naturalists as guides, you can band and release owls, go behind the scenes at a salmon hatchery, take a night hike in search of wolves or frogs, learn to fly-fish or kayak, or explore history, ecology and geology. Help the Foundation celebrate 25 years of conservation by discovering the best of Wisconsin's outdoors.
Join us in the field to learn up-close and hands-on!
To celebrate the Foundation's 25th anniversary in 2011, these special field trips are offered first and exclusively to subscribers of this magazine.
These trips are only for people who are NOT already members of the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin. We hope that the trips inspire you to join. You'll support important conservation efforts and be eligible to participate in many more trips offered each year first to Foundation members.

The registration system is quick and secure. You will receive an instant email confirming your trip selection. Approximately two weeks before your trip, you will receive an additional email with details and driving directions to the specific site.
Act fast! Trips will be filled on a first-come basis. Because space is extremely limited, each household may sign up for ONLY ONE TRIP; maximum of four people per household per trip. Any unfilled trips will be open to the general public and to Foundation members on May 1, so check the website after that date if you would like to register for additional trips.
The registration fee is $10 per adult per trip, or $5 per child (age 15 and under) per trip. Trips that are suitable for children are identified with this icon. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Note that some trips list an additional per person cost. These additional fees offset equipment rentals or support related conservation work.
