Trees For Tomorrow has been educating students about natural resources since 1944! This experience has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of students by immersing them for one to five days in the heart of the northern forest. Our professional teaching staff are experts at using field studies and hands-on activities to awaken student awareness of the land's capabilities and limitations, and to inspire student enthusiasm for sustainable forest stewardship.


We do the teaching! Our professional Environmental Science Teachers have formal classroom experience, Master’s Degrees, and a variety of experience teaching in environmental education settings.

We have updated curriculum aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.

We are an accredited school! Our goal is to be an extension of your classroom. Relevant and fun!

We are located in the heart of the Nicolet National Forest and surrounded by public lands to explore and learn in.

We are full-service! We do the teaching, cooking, and cleaning!
