North Woods, Great Lakes - Boulder Lake

Monday, June 8, 2020 - Friday, June 12, 2020

Join expert instructors in an amazing 18,000 acre North Woods classroom to complete a 40-hour hands-on course. This program allows participants to study natural history, environmental interpretation, and conservation stewardship. Summer is a great time of year to see wildflowers, landscape formations, insects, migrating birds, and more. Individuals interested may not register for single programs-the training is intended for those committed to attending all class sessions listed.

All participants will work towards completing a capstone project over the course of the week. The 40-hour course will run June 8-12, 2020. Daily schedules will vary to take advantage of weather, guest presenters, field trips and natural occurrences. 

Free camping is available onsite along the beautiful shores on Boulder Lake and a minute walk to the classroom. Meals are on your own, there is a full kitchen with refrigerator/microwave/oven that you are more than welcome to use.
