Caroline Urban was a Wolf Ridge Graduate Naturalist from 2018-2020.
“I currently work as an Environmental Education Teacher at North Shore Community School in Duluth, MN.
I decided to participate in the Graduate Naturalist Program after I graduated college, starting in 2018. I had done some informal teaching and knew I liked it, and was interested in improving my teaching skills while using my biology degree to learn more about the ecology of the North Shore.
Along with being a naturalist I focused on the bird banding program at Wolf Ridge and now have a sub-permit to band birds.
Three years later, I cannot imagine where I would be if I hadn’t spent two years at Wolf Ridge. My work experience set me up for many incredible experiences, including spending a summer bird banding in New Mexico, and in my current role as the Environmental Education teacher at North Shore Community School.
I am lucky that my professional interests align so well with the Wolf Ridge program, but it’s the community that immediately comes to mind when I remember Wolf Ridge. I know the memories and friendships I made will be with me forever.”
