Road Scholar
Program #5745ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Experience life in the magnificent North Woods as we examine seasonal bird populations; the region’s top predator, the gray wolf; and trace human stories and experiences from the original Ojibwe Indian settlers through French-Canadian voyageurs, and big-pine lumberjacks.


Highlights

• Witness the wonders of migratory events that stretch back through the mists of time: loons, eagles, and ospreys in June and hawks in August/September. Learn about life cycles, habitats, and special adaptations.
• At the Wildlife Science Center, observe a captive pack of wolves and their special adaptations and behaviors including communication styles. Deepen your knowledge and understanding of this legendary, beautiful predator whose howl sends shivers up the spine.
• Take field trips to museums and the Northwest Fur Post as we explore north country history through the eyes of the Ojibwe and subsequent exploration and exploits of French-Canadian voyageurs — colorful adventurers who journeyed by canoe to trade with Indians for furs — and the environmental and societal impacts of big-pine logging days of the 1800s.
