Staying Safe While We Stay Connected – COVID-19 Policies & Safety Procedures
We care about your health and our COVID-19 Safety Guidelines reflect our desire to create a safe space for all Foundation members. Find details on our Current COVID-19 Guidelines webpage and view our additional COVID-19 waiver. Guideline highlights include:
- Outdoor trips only with small groups of 10-12
- Social distancing of 6’ with people of different households
- Face masks required during Field Trips (regardless of vaccination or COVID-19 history)
- Do not attend a trip if you have a fever or other symptoms, or an active COVID-19 infection
If safety guidelines change we will adapt accordingly, canceling trips as necessary, or adding spaces on trips should the COVID-19 threat subside. If a trip is canceled due to COVID-19, your registration fees will be refunded upon request.
What makes our Field Trips special?
Our Field Trips generally run May through October each year and highlight the best of Wisconsin’s natural world. We offer unique opportunities for all ages to explore Wisconsin’s lands, waters and wildlife by foot, bike, and boat.
Our Field Trips are led by professional natualists who share their love and knowledge of Wisconsin’s lands, waters, and wildlife. Enjoy up-close experiences to Wisconsin’s natural world and learn about the critical conservation work being done to protect it.
