Field Trips

Field Trip Schedule Spring, 2019

Field trips are generally open to the public.  If you want to attend a field trip, but are not registered for the current IMN course, please email info@iowamasternaturalists.org at least a day before the trip so that we can let you know where to meet, what to bring, and if there are any changes in schedule or location. Some of the places we visit charge a fee for folks who are not currently registered for the IMN course.
