There's no doubt about it: Wisconsin is a special place. From migrating monarchs to saw–whet owls, from lichens in the Northwoods to carnivorous plants in the uplands, Wisconsin has no shortage of unique wildlife and wilderness to nourish your soul. With more than 150 field trips planned throughout the state this year, the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin is your guide to getting outdoors to explore the places you most cherish and to interact with the species that call those places home.
Join us on a trip led by an expert to explore the state's natural gems and learn more about the many facets of Wisconsin's lands, waters and wildlife. The adventures run April through November and offer opportunities to hike, bike, become a citizen scientist, paddle a stream, band a bird, tag a butterfly and discover species from bats to mussels to sturgeons.
We have trips for all ages and interests. Visit WisConservation.org for field trip details and online registration.
EASY AS 1, 2, 3
Approximately two weeks before each of your trips, you will receive an email with details and driving directions. Then it's time to get outdoors and get to know Wisconsin. Trips will fill fast, so sign up in April for best availability.
