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.
