Walworth/Jefferson County Chapter

Since 1993, the Walworth/Jefferson County Chapter has reached
out to residents of Walworth and Jefferson Counties and other
nearby communities in southeast Wisconsin and northern Illinois.

 Chapter leaders conduct numerous hikes including popular weekly walks, special-interest hikes such as full moon, prairie flower, birding, and National Trails Day. Other chapter activities include an Adopt-a-Segment program, monthly Trail maintenance days, family events and potlucks. Chapter meetings are held at 7:00 pm on the third Tuesday of each month at the US Bank building in Elkhorn. Visit our events calendar for details on upcoming activities.
