ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Program intended for grandchildren from 9 - 12 years of age.

Explore the life of the wolf with your grandchild at the state-of-the-art International Wolf Center in Ely. Observe the eating, sleeping, and playing habits of the center’s resident pack as you explore the intricacies of lupine behavior. Howl with excitement as you learn their adaptations to survival, the dynamic interaction with prey and the complexities of wolf-human relations with expert lecturers.


Highlights

• Follow wolf tracks, search for wolf scat to prove their elusive presence, and learn the habits of their favorite prey.
• Go on a field trip to track wolves with radio telemetry equipment just like wolf biologists.
• Observe the fauna of Minnesota wildlife in the Superior National Forest and share a picnic with your grandchild by a waterfall.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles per day on forest trails that can be uneven and rocky.

Coordinated by Vermilion Community College.
