NWGL - North House Folk School
Grand Marais, MN 55604
North House Folk School is excited to partner with Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center and University of Minnesota-Extension to host the Northwoods-Great Lakes Master Naturalist Volunteer Training Course on the spectacular North Shore of Lake Superior. Dig deep into northern ecology in this five day immersion course that offers a wide variety of field experiences to explore a variety of area plant and animal communities, amazing geology, and Lake Superior, while also investigating human interactions in these ecosystems. Situated on the Grand Marais Harbor, North House offers an exceptional launching place for learning about the Northwoods and Lake Superior. This session will be offered during the Northern Landscapes Festival, a week when some of Minnesota's finest naturalists converge at North House to take in the emerging spring season through birding, phenology and geology field experiences as well as evening lectures-- no doubt a few of these experts will drop-in to share their knowledge, an added bonus to the already highly qualified lead instructors Margie Menzies and Lisa Tracy. Join us for a tightly packed whirlwind of adventures and learning!
