Birding Hike

Minnesota’s North Shore is home to numerous species of fascinating birds, and Wolf Ridge is a great place to learn more about them. Use binoculars and field guides to identify our many varieties of wild birds, as well as get the opportunity to see our live education raptors up close and personal! Binoculars and field guides are all included, just bring what you need for the morning and your sense of adventure!


Look for Animal Signs

Wild animals leave clues of their presence and behavior all throughout the forest, and all it takes is a little bit of knowledge and curiosity to learn how to find the clues that tell their story. Join a Wolf Ridge naturalist for an exploration of how to see, identify, and interpret animal signs such as tracks, trails, animal beds, and more. Be prepared to explore, learn new things, and begin a journey towards looking at animal signs in a new way!
