NEW This Spring: Friend of the Fieldstation Classes!
UW-Waukesha has a Field Station?
Some would say that the UW-Waukesha Field Station is Waukesha County’s best keep secret! Both the Ice Age Trail and the Glacial Drumlin Bike Trail pass through the property, which is nestled between Wales and Dousman. The Field Station shares a home with the Wildlife in Need Center (WINC) and offers an unparalleled array of learning opportunities in a beautiful, natural setting.
Hope for the future
It is our hope that hands-on learning experiences with plants, animals, soils and water and the ecological processes that bind them together can lead to greater understanding of the natural world and our role as caretakers. UW-Waukesha Continuing Education invites individuals, organizations, youth groups, and schools to contact us for more learning opportunities that are available year-round.
For each individual that registers for a UW-Waukesha ‘Friend of the Field Station’ class, UW-Waukesha Continuing Education will donate ten dollars to the Field Station Foundation Fund. Donated monies will be used for equipment and staffing to control invasive species and for planting wildflowers in the ecological communities as well as general maintenance of buildings and grounds. Please contact UW-Waukesha Continuing Education for your tax donation receipt.
