Collaborate and rejuvenate at the IATA Regional Rallies

Join us for this year’s regional rallies! The event’s theme is Building our Base through Outreach. This summer, volunteers helped design the agenda to fill the day with useful, productive sessions with volunteer needs in mind. We will explore ways to engage unique audiences and target specific groups and, weather permitting, go for a hike.

You don’t need to be an IATA member or volunteer to participate. If you've wanted to learn more about volunteering or spending time on the Trail, this is a great opportunity to get involved.

Dates and locations are:

  • Saturday, Nov. 1, – Chippewa Moraine Obey Interpretive Center, New Auburn
  • Sunday, Nov. 2 – Iola Winter Sports Club, Iola
  • Saturday, Nov. 8 – Hausmann Nature Center at Lapham Peak, Delafield

All rallies are 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

Register now, and bring a friend!

In addition to the business at hand, we will be raffling off 3 Owen J. Gromme prints generously donated by the Gromme family. Raffle ticket prices are 3 for $10, 7 for $20 or 20 for $50. You must be present to purchase and win.

Help build new trail in Dane County!

Join us for the grand finale of a remarkable trail building season.

From October 22–26, volunteers will gather west of Madison to build 2 miles of Ice Age Trail, creating a new hiking and snowshoe opportunity near Highway 12. Please join us at Springfield Hill to put a cherry on top of a great season!
