The Dane County Outdoor Group is for recreational enthusiasts who enjoy exploring Dane county. Our excursions are meant to introduce adventurers to new places, unique experiences and wild inhabitants.

As we explore our trails, parks, forests and natural wonders, we learn from one another about outdoor activities and conservancy practices that help to preserve these precious resources.
