Coronavirus update: Our summer natural history workshops begin on May 29.  We are hoping to be able to hold each of these workshops and are currently accepting registrations.  We will need to evaluate each workshop as the date approaches to determine whether or not it can be held.  If conditions are not safe enough, we will cancel the workshop and offer participants a full refund.  We will follow federal, state and UWM guidelines in determining whether or not it is safe to hold a workshop.

Registrations will be accepted on a first-received basis up to the course capacity of 20 students.
