Join us on a Field Trip!

Explore Wisconsin’s natural wonders with us May though October

Our 2022 season has come to a close. We offered 260+ Field Trips across Wisconsin this year with close to 5,000 participants exploring the great outdoors and learning about critical conservation issues with top-notch leaders.

Our new slate of 2023 Field Trips will be announced in early March.

Note: You must be a current member of the Foundation to register for Field Trips. If you are not currently a member, we invite you to become a member now, and join us out in the field for our 2023 season. Your gift supports our mission to protect Wisconsin’s lands, waters, and wildlife, and will ensure you are on the mailing list for the 2023 Field Trip Guidebook.

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 expert naturalists 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.
