Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin: Virtual Field Trips

To teach students about nature and inspire them with wonder for the natural world, there's really nothing better than a field trip. Yet if the learning challenges of the past two years have revealed anything, it's that education must be flexible to meet students where they are. These virtual field trips are a perfect example, offering educators in ecology, biology, life sciences, and other topics the opportunity to "take" their students to see Wisconsin's wildlife. Each of these 15 virtual field trips lasts approximately 5-20 minutes and features stunning visuals and explanations from expert naturalists, conservationists, and tour guides. For example, teachers can take students on a tour of Hoo's Woods Raptor Center to see how injured owls and hawks are rehabilitated. Or, as the cold winter months set in, educators can introduce a little sunshine with a springtime search for frogs and turtles with conservation biologist Andrew Badje. There are also field trips that any visitor would enjoy, such as a walk through blooming wildflowers in Schmidt Maple Woods. The field trips are embedded in the page linked above, and include links to resources for further information and to support conservation efforts. The Nature Resources Foundation of Wisconsin is a non-profit organization whose mission is to "connect generations to the wonders of Wisconsin's lands, waters, and wildlife through conservation, education, engagement, and giving."
