Field Trip & Event Guidelines and Safety Protocol

COVID-19 remains a dynamic situation and we will update our safety guidelines throughout the season as needed. We care about your health and safety. Our current safety guidelines to our Field Trip program include:

  • Social distancing
  • Indoor trips: face masks may be required*
  • Outdoor trips: face masks are optional, though we ask that you bring one along for times when social distancing is not possible*

*Face masks may be required on some trips due to leader preference or local/facility policies, to be determined closer to date of trip.

Virtual Field Trips Available!

You can also connect to our Field Trip Program in the comfort of your own home. We are offering VIRTUAL FIELD TRIPS on our Facebook page and website.

These short videos feature highlights of past Field Trips, webinars on interesting natural resource topics, and leaders filming in their favorite natural places. It’s a great opportunity to discover Wisconsin, virtually!
