Wisconsin's state parks and forests take on a special beauty during winter. Enjoy the winter scenery, get healthy exercise and have some fun by cross-country skiing on hundreds of miles of trails.

MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources now offers annual state park passes for sale online. This service is part of the DNR’s overall effort to accommodate the high demand for state park stickers and to encourage Wisconsinites to visit the state’s array of public land.

YourPassNow is a digital marketplace that allows Wisconsin state park visitors to conveniently purchase their annual state park passes online.

Stickers available for purchase online include:

  • Annual Wisconsin resident, $28
  • Wisconsin resident senior (65 and older), $13
  • Non-resident, $38

Developed in cooperation with the National Park Service, YourPassNow provides an alternative to the traditional in-person purchase or order by phone.

“We are excited to offer a new and convenient way to purchase an annual state park sticker,” said DNR Secretary Preston D. Cole. “Wisconsin boasts some of the most beautiful outdoor spaces anywhere, including state parks, natural areas, trails, forests and more.”

Annual stickers are valid through Dec. 31, 2021. To purchase a sticker online, go to YourPassNow. Stickers should arrive by mail within 30 days of purchase. A printed copy of the receipt serves as valid proof of purchase until the sticker comes and should be displayed on the driver’s side dashboard when visiting a state park. Receipts will be emailed the same day of purchase. Those who don’t receive a receipt should email

Annual state trail passes and reduced-rate annual stickers are not currently available for purchase online but can still be purchased over the phone or at individual properties via self-self-registration stations, electronic kiosks or drive-up window service. To purchase with a credit card by phone from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, call toll-free at 888-305-0398.

"I used to listen to the radio on my way to the barbershop every weekend, they had this program called the Saturday Morning Blues Brunch," remembers Stephen Hull of the car rides that planted his love for the blues when he was 14.

Seven years later, now 21 and a self-taught guitarist, Hull's band — The Stephen Hull Experience, a blues-rock group based in Racine — is now a finalist for a national music competition.

The café is the first Black-owned coffee shop in Racine, according to owner Deontrae Mayfield.

Volunteers swing by the building to teach free classes, ranging from sewing to construction. Mayfield's goal is to offer youths skills they may not access in high school. But there's plenty more going down at The Main Project.

"I've learned that it's easier to help out than people think it is," said 19-year-old volunteer Devin Wilson. 

Mayfield learned how to make coffee just three days before his opening date, he said, and for the first two weeks he was open, he didn't charge anyone for the drinks they ordered. "I was still learning," he said. "I wanted to make sure I could make a great cup of coffee before I had you pay for it."
