The Chippewa Moraine Chapter officially formed in 1988 and sponsors hikes, work outings and presentations on glacial geology. The chapter maintains a close relationship with the Chippewa Moraine Ice Age Reserve, where many events take place, like the annual Parade of Colors hike.

The chapter’s web site features a wealth of information, including news items, an archive of chapter newsletters, information for hikers (including segment maps), and information for members and volunteers. There is also information about the trail related merchandise that the chapter offers for sale at the Obey Interpretive Center at the Chippewa Moraine Ice Age Reserve.

The chapter publishes a regular newsletter via email, which includes short announcements and event updates along with trail condition reports. In addition, trail news is regularly updated on the chapter web site. You may also Follow the chapter on Twitter
