For nature enthusiasts, there’s no time of year quite as exciting as spring. And in spring, there’s no place like Door County. Since 2002, Door County conservation organizations along with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources have joined together to bring you the Festival of Nature, a celebration of the unique biodiversity and natural beauty we strive to protect.
This year, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program. Seasoned trip leaders will guide you through some of the most pristine and unique natural areas in the county, many of which have been protected with Stewardship grant funds.
Highlights of the Festival
- NEW! Full-Day Birding Outing on Washington Island
- NEW! Study Lake Ecology Aboard a Great Lakes Research Vessel
- NEW! Ida Bay Forest & the New Trails at Crossroads
- NEW! Plum Island Tour
- NEW! Waseda Farms Tour
