Yes, we had a great time on ours. There are all kinds of adventures available - banding song birds, banding owls, pontoon tour of Horicon Marsh and the Mississippi River, canoe trips on the Wisconsin river down to Aldo Leopold's Shack, tours of prairies, wetlands, lakes, etc., etc. Something for everyone with an interest in the outdoors.

$25 is the individual membership. The individual membership allows you to bring up to 5 guests on a field trip that you register for. Last year you could register for up to 4 trips during the early registration period. After April 15th you could register for an additional 4 trips.

The $15 - $30 per person per trip cost is an average. Some are a little more. A trip that includes a pontoon ride, for example, will be more. Many of the trips will be the same as last year (2016) as listed in the online guidebook:
The price for each trip is listed with each trip description. Page 44 of the online guidebook has the specific field trip registration details.

This year's guidebook should be out about the middle of February. They are expecting to have about 200 trips this year.

If you are thinking about going on some trips I would definitely become a member before February 15. That allows you to participate in the early registration period. Many of the more popular trips fill up during this early registration period (late March).
Age is a biological fact.
Old is a state of mind.
I will age, but I refuse to get old.
