Program Descriptions

June 21 – Team “Trees” Discover all that Trees For Tomorrow has to offer! Go on a cross-campus scavenger hunt, build new friendships on our challenge course, and much more. Bring a 100% cotton t-shirt for leaf printing OR purchase one for $6.

June 28 – Wildlife Rangers Become a wildlife biologist for the day! We’ll explore endangered species, play an animal population simulation game, use radio telemetry to track wildlife, and hunt for animal signs in the forest.

July 5 – Forestry Frenzy Forestry has an important place in Wisconsin’s history. Test your lumberjack skills in logging era challenges, become a forester as you learn to identify and measure trees, and uncover the many uses of trees when you make your very own paper.

July 12 – Nicolet for a Day The Nicolet National Forest is an outdoor treasure in the Eagle River area. We’ll learn about its history, then become explorers as we visit different hiking trails and lakes within the Nicolet. Participants will travel off-site in TFT vehicles.

July 19 – Lake Life Lake lovers rejoice! We’ll walk to Silver Lake to discover who’s wriggling under the water, practice our canoe skills, and learn how we can care for our lakes. Close-toed water shoes or boots are required OR rent bog boots for $1 (smaller sizes limited).

July 26 – Survival Skills Back by popular demand! Put your skills to the test as we learn how to navigate with a GPS and compass, build fires and shelters, shoot archery, and much more! How long will you survive?!

August 2 – Micro-Life Sometimes being small is a pretty big deal! We’ll get up close and personal with all things itty bitty as we dig in the dirt, explore rotting logs, learn about lichen, and more.

August 9 – Animal Adaptations How do animals survive in their habitats? We’ll explore the unique features of different Northwoods animals, go on an animal adaptations hike, and meet some of TFT’s live animals.
