2020 Field Trip registration & season postponed

Due to the rapidly changing response to COVID-19, we have decided to postpone our 2020 Field Trip season, including Field Trip registration which was due to occur on April 1.

Updates and details will be shared on April 15, 2020 by email, our website, and social media.

You must be a member of the Foundation to register for Field Trips.

If you are not already a member, or your membership has lapsed, please consider a membership donation now.

Our 2020 Field Trip Guidebook will be mailed to our current members around March 10,
and registration opens noon, April 1.

Our Field Trips run April through October each year and highlight the best of Wisconsin’s natural resources.
We offer unique opportunities for all ages to explore Wisconsin’s lands, waters and wildlife by foot, bike, and boat.

What makes our Field Trips special?

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. Enjoy up-close experiences that connect participants to the critical conservation work being done to protect Wisconsin’s precious natural resources.
