Join Timber Wolf Alliance Chair Adrian Wydeven and TWA Advisory Council members for this wolf ecology volunteer certification course. Learn about wolf ecology, wolf monitoring techniques, and the latest wolf issues from biologists and educators immersed in this field. Time will be spent in the classroom and in the field surveying wolf pack territories. Participants will assist with wolf howling surveys and learn techniques in wolf tracking and radio telemetry.
This workshop meets the ecology qualifications for DNR Volunteer Carnivore Tracker for winter wolf counts, Volunteer wolf howler to survey in summer, and the training for Timber Wolf Alliance Speakers Bureau.
The workshop is open to any student or adult interested in wolves and experiencing them in the wild. Workshop fees include meals, bunkhouse accommodations, and all workshop materials.
The program takes place at Forest Lodge, a unique and historic estate nestled among 872 acres of majestic forest in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and situated along the pristine shores of Lake Namekagon. The old growth forest and serene water is sure to awaken your senses and rejuvenate you.

To fulfill the Timber Wolf Alliance’s mission, our volunteer Speakers Bureau helps accomplish the goals of using science, outreach, and education in promoting wolf recovery in Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula through public education, citizen science, and volunteer activities.
If you are curious about how this happens and, perhaps, interested in talking to others about wolf issues, a Speakers Bureau training session will be offered. You’ll receive interactive training on what content to include in your presentations and how to present information in an engaging, entertaining way. This training will take place at Forest Lodge on Friday, August 19, from 4-6 PM.
