Saturday 21 September 2019, 09:30am - 08:00pm

 

Its not too early to reserve your spots for this year's Madison Area Herpetological Society annual fall field herping outing to central Wisconsin!!! September will be here before we know it, so everyone had better make their reservations today!!! More details can be found below!
 
September 21st, 2019 will be our field herping outing to Central Wisconsin!!! Rain date will be September 28th, 2019 in the event of inclement weather. Last year was a great success for finding a number of rare and unique herps not found anywhere else in the state, and hopefully this year will be even better for us! Plan to meet at the Stoughton/Dutch Mill Park and Ride in Madison and be prepared to head north at 9:30 am. Please be sure to bring sturdy and comfortable hiking footwear, water, and anything else you may need and be prepared for hiking up some steep and difficult terrain at some of our stops. This will be a paid, member’s only outing. Any attendees must be in good membership standing by September 7th (or two weeks before the outing).
 
LUNCH WILL BE PAID FOR BY MAHS!!! IF YOU ARE DRIVING/CARPOOLING SEPARATELY, AND ARRIVE AHEAD OF EVERYONE ELSE, PLEASE WAIT FOR US TO ARRIVE TO PAY FOR LUNCH. An additional $10 trip fee PER PERSON is also required to help cover gas and other expenses of the outing.
