Our Children’s Forest School Programs are conducted by trained educators and naturalists representing partner agencies at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center. Programs focus on learning about the stewardship of the Lake Superior region through grade-appropriate educational activities.
Programs are available by advance reservation only, on a first-come first-serve basis. For reservations or information, please contact Susan Nelson at 715-685-2644 or send an email.
Information on 2015 open enrollment for Children’s Forest School Programs coming soon! (Note: Lake Superior Estuary Ed-Venture Programs for students age 12 and above may be scheduled from June-September. Please see program description below for more details.)
Classes are welcome to have lunch at the Center with advance notice. Please see the listing of Self-Directed Experiences tab for information on additional educational activities to round out your day at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center.
All programs are correlated to Wisconsin Academic Standards, and designed to provide relevance for multi-cultural audiences. Programs are produced in part, under grants provided by the Wisconsin Environmental Education Board and the Wisconsin Coastal Management. Copies of the complete Lake Superior Stewardship K-12 Curriculum are available at the University of Wisconsin web site.
