Where better to take the Northwoods-Great Lakes course than right on the shores of Lake Superior with Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory using the historic University of Minnesota Limnology Lab in Duluth, Minnesota as a basecamp? You will learn about the fascinating geology, plant and animal communities, inland lakes and bogs, ecology and human interactions of the Northwoods, as well as how Lake Superior impacts and interacts with these ecosystems. Enjoy a field-oriented look at a variety of plant and animal communities in the peak of their productive summer season! The course will run from 9 am to 5 pm every other Saturday for 5 sessions beginning June 11 and ending August 6, 2022. Field trips will be incorporated into the scheduled class days. A capstone project is expected of participants and will be completed in small groups, with possible projects suggestions provided by the instructor.
