FT140_CSeeley_HikersOur 2015 field trip season is near over, and what a wonderful year it was!  Over 3,700 participants got out in the field this year to explore and learn about Wisconsin’s many natural resources on 151 field trips.

Looking forward to 2016! We invite you to experience the wonder and joy of Wisconsin by taking a field trip to see our state’s most amazing wild places and creatures, guided by enthusiastic professionals and expert guides.  Field trip season runs from mid-April through mid-November.  Our field trips are only open to Natural Resources Foundation members and their guests. Join online now! Your membership supports the conservation of our state’s most precious resources: our public lands, waters, and wildlife.

What makes our field trips special?

We offer amazing and completely unique opportunities for all ages and abilities to explore and learn about bats, birds, butterflies, beetles, and more. Or hike, bike, or canoe in Wisconsin’s most spectacular places. You’ll have a great time, and discover the very best of our state.

Our field trips are led by professionals from the Department of Natural Resources and other experts who share their love and knowledge of Wisconsin’s lands, waters, and wildlife. No other organization offers these kinds of up-close experiences that inspire our participants and provide a great introduction to Wisconsin’s precious natural resources.
