Get out on National Trails Day with the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network as we host four simultaneous, geologist-led hikes through some of Wisconsin’s most fascinating geologic landscapes. Learn about the wonders of this 1,000-mile long, 430-million-year-old cliff face environment with ecologist and geologist Bob Bultman as you hike along some of Northeastern Wisconsin’s most beloved trails.

Located along more than three miles of the Niagara Escarpment, Bayshore Blufflands is an ecologically complex site with a diversity of plant communities both above and below the escarpment and a series of seeps and springs at the base of the bluff's talus slopes. The bluffs rise 150-200 feet above the low terrace of Green Bay.

Come help us celebrate the Ledge and kickoff NERN's new WI-LEDGE Geotourism Program and on-line WI-LEDGE Rambler Map Guide. Proceeds support the WI-LEDGE Educational Signage Program. Limited to 15 persons for each hike so sign up soon!
