Chippewa Moraine Chapter

The Chippewa Moraine Chapter officially formed in 1988, and we sponsor hikes, work outings, and presentations on glacial geology. We maintain a close relationship with the Chippewa Moraine Ice Age Reserve, where many events take place, such as the annual Parade of Colors hike.

Note: For information on the Chippewa Moraine Ice Age Reserve’s Obey Interpretive Center, please contact the center directly:

Phone: (715) 967-2800
Hours: Wednesday through Sunday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Connect With Us

Our chapter website features a wealth of information, including news items, information for hikers (including segment maps), and information for members and volunteers. There is also information about the trail-related merchandise that we sell at the Obey Interpretive Center.

We publish an email newsletter regularly, which includes short announcements, event updates, and trail condition reports.
