2021 Nature Field Trips

Overview of this year’s natural history field trips



Greetings everyone,


Yes, it’s true!  The field trips are finally back! 


Working closely with the college’s Covid Coordinator, we have concluded that the field trips can proceed in a relatively safe manner, although there is of course always a slight element of risk. We have a brand-new touring van, so we will be traveling in luxury.  However, for the time being, masks must be worn while on the van.  Also, to ensure a measure of social distancing, each seat will accommodate only one person, unless it is family.


So here are this year’s natural history field trips sponsored by the Extension Department at the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College near Hayward, Wisconsin. Whenever possible I have alternated field trip weekdays from the last season’s so that virtually everyone can participate in a new one this year, whether it be on a Wednesday or Saturday.     


Details regarding each field trip will be forthcoming as the time draws nearer.  It will be a pleasure to once again explore the wonders of Nature with you or, if this is your first time, to bid you welcome!  Hawk Ridge is this year’s only field trip that is handicapped-accessible.
