Take a field day

Book a weekend hike, tour or paddle from April through October.

Want a little sound advice? Take a hike! Please consider joining us for one of the 77 day trips – guided walks, tours and leisurely paddles – led by naturalists and DNR staff who enjoy noting the plants, animals, progress and challenges in managing natural resources. These trips are annually coordinated by the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, celebrating its 20th anniversary this spring. Many trips visit State Natural Areas, noted as SNAs in the listings.

Note these 77 trips are arranged chronologically from April through October. Assume these day trips fall on Saturdays unless otherwise noted.

Space is limited and trips fill quickly on a first-come, first-served basis. Trips that can accommodate fewer than 20 people show these limits in the listing. Canoe and kayak trips are especially popular. Please only request one such trip per family or group.

Details and directions will be sent to registrants two weeks before each trip. Fees are nonrefundable if you cancel, but parties on waiting lists that can't be accommodated will receive refunds.

To view trip listings, register or check if trips still have space available, go to Natural Resources Foundation, or call toll-free (866) 264-4096 after 5 p.m. A recording provides trip updates. Further questions? Call me on Wednesdays at (608) 264-8548 or e-mail Christine Tanzer.

Christine Tanzer is field trip coordinator for the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin.
