Join us on a new adventure! To honor the 50th anniversary of the State Natural Areas (SNA) program, all of the Natural Resource Foundation's field trips this year visit the places that preserve our best examples of rare habitat, scenic places and unusual geography. The trips are led by DNR experts sharing their enthusiasm and knowledge of some of Wisconsin's most beautiful properties. Many trips are new this year and probably will not be repeated in future years.

Register now

Signing up for trips is easy, and most are free of charge. Space is limited and trips that can accommodate fewer than 20 people are indicated in the listings below. We expect to fill trips quickly and trips are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so register as soon as possible. Details and directions to each trip site will be sent to registrants two weeks before each trip.

Trips are numbered chronologically from early April through mid-October. Assume the trips fall on weeknds unless noted in the listings.

Register for trip by number and tell us how many people are in your party. An annual one-time registration fee costs $15 per family/group for Foundation members; $25 for nonmember family/group. This year, the $25 fee also includes an introductory one-year membership to the Natural Resources Foundation to keep you abreast of our activities.

A handful of trips list per person costs in addition to the registration fee to cover the price of meals and transportation provided. All trip fees are non-refundable. Parties on waiting lists who cannot be accommodated will receive refunds in July and October. Groups are limited to only one canoe trip per year because these outings are so popular.

To register, clip or photocopy the form, list the trips that interest you by number, calculate the fees, submit one check for all trips payable to the Natural Resources Foundation, and mail completed forms with checks to NRF Field Trips, P.O. Box 2317, Madison, WI 53701. If you have questions or physical limitations, call Christine Tanzer for trip details before registering at (608) 264-8548 on Wednesdays. A recorded toll-free message that is available after 5 p.m. each day at (866) 264-4096 provides updates as field trips fill.
