Explore Lake Superior

In this recording of a live virtual event on Sunday, August 8, 2021, explore Minnesota’s North Shore from the water to the land to the air, with three Wolf Ridge Naturalists.

In our 50-year history, Wolf Ridge has been moving steadily toward the shore — from Isabella to Finland, MN in 1988 and finally to Lake Superior in 2015. What a gift to be able to expand our outdoor classroom to the shoreline of Lake Superior.

Danielle Hefferan guides us all on a typical naturalist adventure (you never know what surprises we’ll discover together) with Peter Harris on the water in his sailboat and Joe Walewski on land among lichen communities to explore our newest addition to the Wolf Ridge campus, including 1,650 feet of pristine shoreline. Learn about the unique natural features of this wild and beautiful land and how we are working to balance ecological ethics with human access.
