The International Wolf Center, located in Ely, Minnesota, is pleased to announce the 2005-2006 season of workshops, learning vacations, and other educational opportunities. (A full list of programs is available on the web site at http://www.wolf.org.)
The International Wolf Center offers hands-on opportunities for youth, families, adults, and educators to learn about wolves and their environment. Our goal is to help people better understand the beauty and power of the animal in its own environment.
Program participants are scholars, science teachers, families looking for a unique experience to learn and camp together, and adults who are curious about wolves, ecology, and the environment. Everyone is welcome. Classes blend traditional, online and experiential learning to provide a memorable experience for wolf novices and experts alike.
Andrea Lorek Strauss, National Education Director agrees the programs cater to individuals with a wide range of experiences, ÂActive adults enjoy workshops arranged with the International Elderhostel, such as the Wolves in Winter Learning Adventure; Family Dogsled is a class that has been a perennial favorite with families; and serious campers are drawn to the class on Wolf Predation: Hunting Behavior and Predator-Prey Systems.Â
Programs include at least one overnight stay in a wilderness area or nearby hotel, including the Michigan, Wisconsin, and Yellowstone Parks and the interpretive center in Ely, Minnesota. Some learning adventures include travel from Minneapolis-St Paul to Ely, Minnesota. (The International Wolf Center also provides daily programming at its facility in Ely, Minnesota. Advanced registration is not requires to participate in daily programming at the Center.)

The International Wolf Center is a nonprofit organization. Their mission is profoundly simple: The International Wolf Center advances the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wild lands and the human role in their future. Towards that goal, the International Wolf Center offers training opportunities, publishes International Wolf magazine, and maintains an information-rich web site (http://www.wolf.org) that includes online lessons for individuals and teachers.
