Northwoods-Great Lakes Course
Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory
March 4th, and 18th, April 15th and 29th, and May 13th.

Where better to take the Northwoods-Great Lakes course than right on the shores of Lake Superior with Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory at the historic University of Minnesota Limnology Lab in Duluth, Minnesota? 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.

This course offers guest speakers and unique field trip experiences in a beautiful location. Travel through the transition from the ice and snow of winter into the greening spring in the Northwoods on Lake Superior! The course will run from 9 am to 5 pm on the scheduled Saturdays (with a bit wider gap in March) for 5 sessions beginning March 4, and ending May 13, 2023. Field trips will be incorporated into the scheduled class days. A capstone project is expected of participants, as well as the commitment to volunteer for 40 hours during the year.

The course cost is $295 and includes course manuals and supplies.

If the course cost is a hardship, please fill out the scholarship application. After the scholarship is fully processed, you will receive a code to be entered in the on-line registration process. Please wait until you receive that code to complete registration.
