Wolf Ridge Trip

Our students had the great opportunity to spend 3 days at Wolf Ridge learning about nature and strengthening relationships with each other.

Founded in 1971, Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center was the first environmental learning center in the nation to be accredited as a K-12 school and is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in environmental education.

During the school year, more than 15,000 children, teachers and parent chaperones head to Wolf Ridge to have their own adventure in learning. Students go from all over, from more than 165 schools in communities across Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin because of the unique location – located south of the Boundary Waters and overlooking the North Shore of Minnesota's Lake Superior.
