The Madison and Outdoor Social Group started a few years ago as a group for recreational enthusiasts who enjoy exploring the Madison area.   Our excursions are meant to introduce adventurers to new places, unique experiences and wild inhabitants.  In an effort to increase the events and attendance we now encourage Social events, also.

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.
