Classes & Experiences

50+ Lessons to Expand Your World

Our curriculum aligns with state academic standards, Common Core, and Next Generation Science Standards.

Our nationally-recognized curriculum stimulates a connection with and understanding of natural environments. Instructors involve students in direct observation, inquiry, and exploration of wild forests, wetlands, lakes, and streams. Most groups chose a well-rounded mix of classes and activities. Others focus on particular goals, such as team building, sustainability, or hands-on experiences in nature.


Daytime Classes

Daytime classes are typically 3 hours long. The morning class goes from 8:30-11:30 am, and the afternoon class goes from 1:30-4:30 pm. Classes focus on science, personal growth, cultural history, team building, and outdoor skills, and align with Minnesota academic standards.

Evening Options

Evening classes go from 6:30-9:15 pm, and are taught by a Wolf Ridge Naturalist or adults from your group. Additional activities can be led by adults from your group from 6:30-8:00 pm. After the sun goes down, choose to have a campfire or go to an astronomy program led by a naturalist.

Virtual Field Trips

Our live, virtual field trips offer students the chance to interact with Wolf Ridge from the comfort of their own classroom. Your 30- to 40-minute session is offered via video by a Wolf Ridge naturalist with lessons designed to stimulate curiosity about the natural world.
