Discover and support Wisconsin's natural places.
Take it outside
Explore a field trip with the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin.
Christine Tanzer and Maria Sadowski
Think you know Wisconsin? The Natural Resources Foundation bets it can show you places and experiences you never knew existed. From our State Parks to our State Natural Areas, to our wetlands, grasslands, forests and streams, Wisconsin is full of natural treasures that make our state a beautifully diverse place to live. And, as the saying goes, you have to know something in order to cherish it — and want to care for it.
Thatís what the field trips are all about: Getting to know Wisconsin. Appreciating our lands, waters and wildlife. Helping to make sure that our children and grandchildren can enjoy these places, now and forever. The Foundation offers 150 field trips this year — thatís 30 more than last year, with space for an additional 500 participants. The adventures run April through November and offer opportunities to hike, become a citizen scientist, paddle a stream, band a bird or tag a butterfly and discover species from bats to mussels to sturgeons. Visit WisConservation.org for field trip details and bring a friend along as you explore —and better appreciate — the state we call home.
