Wolf Ridge ELC

The Wilkin SWCD helped sponsor the 7th and 8th graders from St. Mary's school attend Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, Finland, MN for the week of February 27th – March 3rd.    

This week-long adventure included classes in winter survival, planetarium and night hikes, Ojibwe snowshoeing, bird watching, rock climbing, and ropes course and zip line that the students are both very nervous and excited about. 

Experiencing Wolf Ridge is an excellent way for students to grow more in their knowledge of the outdoors and promote self-awareness and leadership development in the process. 

Founded in 1971, Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center is 2,000 acres of forest for the students to explore and was the first environmental learning center in the nation to be accredited as a K-12 school and is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in environmental education.
