Winter Hike 1:30 – 4:30 PM

Winter presents the opportunity to explore the interior of the Cedarburg Bog.  Field Station Director, Jim Reinartz will lead the annual hike into the heart of the Bog. This is a 4-mile hike, and weather or snow and ice conditions can make this hike challenging.  In the past we have hiked in bitter cold, on a warm day with wet slush over the ice, in deep snow, with no snow at all on very slick ice, and when we were lucky, with a little snow over solid ice.  If ice conditions in the Bog are not safe, we will hike in the uplands instead. The Field Station website ( will be updated several days prior to the hike with snow and ice conditions. Please dress for the weather and bring your own ice cleats.

Suggested donation for the Hike is $5. If you also plan to attend the Chili Potluck following the hike, register for that separately so we can plan accordingly for food. Thanks!

Please, no pets allowed.
