NEED A LYFT? The Foundation for Dane County Parks is generously sponsoring free Lyft rides for attendees. Email foundationfordanecountyparks@gmail.com to coordinate a ride.

Parking is free outside the Lussier Family Heritage Center

Nature is for everyone; and every body! Access Ability Wisconsin (AAW), in partnership with Foundation for Dane County Parks, will have several outdoor wheelchairs (OWCs) available for use, with tank-like tracks and a tilt switch designed to allow individuals with mobility challenges of all ages to explore the outdoors independently and safely.


Tales from Planet Earth is a film series hosted by the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies. These free viewings, hosted once or twice a year, link compelling narratives to the work of scholars and community organizations who advocate for environmental and social justice. Originally a film festival, Tales from Planet Earth has evolved into a community based, interactive engagement and learning experience.
