Wolf Ridge is Not a Nature Center
Wolf Ridge is an accredited residential learning center. Our visiting school program immerses students in the outdoors.
We offer 50+ classes and experiences designed to stimulate a love and understanding of the natural world. Our staff is busy teaching students and hosting scheduled visiting groups throughout the day.
If you’d like to experience an activity or tour on campus, please contact us ahead of time.
Wolf Ridge is Not the Wolf Center
Our good friends at the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota, love visitors, especially if they’re looking for a live wolf exhibit. Wolf Ridge does not offer wolf exhibits.
We do offer the chance to experience abundant wildlife on our 2,000-acre campus while exploring 18 miles of hiking and ski trails.
