Wolf Ridge is about adventures in learning. It is a place where minds open to the joy and wonder of discovery of our natural world.
In environmental education, the outdoors is the classroom – and ours is spectacular. Located on a ridge overlooking Lake Superior, Wolf Ridge’s 2,000 acre campus is bordered by the Baptism River and features creeks, two lakes, two high peaks, 18-miles of trail and a mixed forest of maple, birch and spruce.Wildlife is abundant and includes pine marten, eagles, moose, black bear, white-tailed deer, fox, wolves, beaver, peregrine falcons and loons.
Facilities include four classroom buildings, two dormitories, a dining hall, a raptor aviary, a library, two auditoriums, two rock-climbing walls, two outdoor ropes courses and an administration building. Our biomass boilers, wind turbines, solar hot water and on-site organic farm also serve as educational tools.
Wolf Ridge inspires the next generation of environmental learners through immersion, adventure and field study. Our broad spectrum of year-round environmental and outdoor learning programs for children, families, seniors and college students serve 15,000 people each year, including our K-12 Residential Environmental Education, Summer Camps, Family Programs, Wilderness Trips, Road Scholar Programs, and Ecology Credit Camps.
