Bring the Outdoors to Your Phone

People now have an easier and more convenient way to find activities, events and nature programs at Wisconsin state parks, with a new mobile-friendly events calendar on the Department of Natural Resources website.

The new calendar has several user-friendly features, including being able to search for events by date, property or type of activity. The calendar shows event location information including contacts and maps and has links directly from event locations to park campsite reservation system. It also has an “add to your calendar” function that allows people to add event reminders to their personal electronic calendars.

The new calendar also includes an RSS feed so that a new Wisconsin State Parks and Forests mobile app that will be available later this summer can pull in event information directly from the DNR website. The new calendar can be found by searching the DNR website,, for “Get Outdoors.”
