Strong successful futures come from solid foundations and time-tested models. Wolf Ridge is using the successes of the past 40+ years to achieve an even more accomplished future. The board and staff of Wolf Ridge create strategic plans every three years with targeted goals that enhance our effectiveness and broaden our mission. We measure our success with achievement of these goals.


Our strategic intent is clear. Wolf Ridge will develop future environmental learners and leaders by providing unparalleled experiential learning opportunities in ways that model and teach values, behaviors and technologies that lead to sustainable lifestyles.  At the same time, we will thoughtfully expand our leadership role to become a nexus between cutting edge science and education to disseminate research findings.


In our future look for us to:


  1. Optimize the utilization of our facilities and programs, including a major renovation and additions that will update our West Dormitory to better serve our students and create a living laboratory of sustainability.
  2. Develop and implement long-range facility and land management plans.
  3. Update and expand our curricular offerings.  These areas will include linking kids to growing food locally, incorporating Lake Superior more strongly into our learning experiences and expanding the reach of our programs to new audiences.
  4. Ensure the long-term financial stability of the organization.
  5. Increase the use of our scientific research and educator training as an outreach effort that benefits a wider audience within the environmental education industry.
