FIELD TRIPS

Field trips are for participants age six and older and are limited to groups of 14. Groups larger than 14 participants will be split into subgroups. Allow two to four hours for each program. Winter hiking programs will utilize snowshoes. All field trips begin inside, but feature outside activities. Programs are always adapted to the audience needs and learning level.

Wolf Speak Field Trip
Learn the how and whys of howling and other wolf vocalizations. After an indoor presentation on wolf communication, travel by vehicle into the Superior National Forest with your educator and howl to a local pack. Minimal walking involved.

Wolf Research Techniques
An introductory program on wolf research techniques is followed by practice outdoors with radio telemetry equipment on-site and is followed up with traveling by vehicle to an off-site location to try to locate a radio-collared wolf in the wild. Some light hiking involved.

Wolf and Wildlife Signs
Travel off-site into the Superior National Forest to a local trail and explore the northwoods looking for signs of wolves and other wildlife such as tracks, scat and scrapes. Trails are typically 1 to 3 miles in length over uneven natural trails. Light to moderate hiking/snowshoeing is involved.

Beavers and Wolves
Visit the home of one wolf prey, the beaver. Travel off-site to an active beaver pond and learn how beavers successfully evade wolves and other predators. Light to moderate hiking involved depending on the location of the pond (locations may change seasonally).
