The Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin again offers you the opportunity to join DNR staff on field trips this year. From spring to fall you can come along on guided hikes, paddles and boat rides to explore the outdoors. Trip leaders enjoy the chance to explain how resources are managed and to point out special features of the properties you will visit.

Assume that the 62 trips fall on Saturdays unless otherwise noted in the listings. Also note that the physical demands of each trip are listed.

Space is limited, and we expect to fill trips quickly, so register as soon as possible. There's a limit of only one canoe trip per family or group, please.

To register, please print out the registration form. List the trip number, the number of people in your group and any per-person trip costs. Please note there's an annual tax-deductible registration fee of $25 per group or family. The fee includes a one-year membership to the Foundation.

Calculate your costs and please mail one check for all trips payable to the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin. Mail completed forms and checks to NRF Field Trips, P.O. Box 2317, Madison, WI 53701. Trips that can accommodate fewer than 20 people are indicated in the listing. Details and directions will be sent to registrants two weeks before each trip. All trip fees are non-refundable, but parties on waiting lists who cannot be accommodated will receive refunds in July or October.
