Wolf Ecology & Conservation Certification Course
August 10–August 12
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 both DNR Volunteer Carnivore Tracker for winter wolf counts, 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.
The course will be led by Adrian Wydeven and other Timber Wolf Alliance Advisory Council members. The Timber Wolf Alliance is a program of the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute at Northland College. The Timber Wolf Alliance promotes education about wolves and use of sound science for wolf conservation.
