Join SOEI student leaders (and guest leader Professor Dave Ullman!) on a weekend trip to participate in the Ice Age Trail Alliance’s Annual Reconnect Trailbuilding and Stewardship event. Learn the art and science of trail building. Connect with a community of like-minded trail enthusiasts. Eat good food, and enjoy great conversations around the fire. Get to know one of the coolest professors at Northland! Get incredible sleep each night after fulfilling days of giving back to one of the most beloved outdoor resources in Wisconsin. No previous trail building experience necessary. All instruction, equipment, transportation, and food is being provided by SOEI Outdoor Pursuits.
The full cost of facilitating this SOEI weekend trip ($225.00/person) has been largely offset by a generous grant from the John C. Bock Foundation. What’s more, to meet our goal of ensuring equitable access to our experiences, students may choose from three price-point options.
There will be a pre-trip meeting in the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute on Thursday, September 30 at 6 p.m. This outing will depart from the SOEI at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 8 and return on Sunday, October 10 by 5:30 p.m.
