“The 50th” Speaker Series

“Stories are powerful things: they create our reality as much as they explain it.” – Alex Evans

This year, we are celebrating Wolf Ridge’s 50th Anniversary with “The 50th Speaker Series!” Each FREE event features members of the Wolf Ridge community and beyond, including current staff and alumni of our naturalist training program and summer camps.

Events on a variety of topics are giving us an opportunity to come together and learn. We’ll begin each event with a short update from the board or staff about the impacts COVID-19 has had on the center, how Wolf Ridge is adapting, and how you can help us make it through the months ahead.

Our next event is listed below. For a list of upcoming speakers, plus recordings of speakers you may have missed, see the side menu.
