Open minds to new discoveries. Create lifelong memories. Transform lives.

Founded in 1971, Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center was the first environmental learning center in the nation to be accredited as a K-12 school and is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in environmental education.
Each year, more than 15,000 children, teachers and parent chaperones travel to our 2,000-acre campus from more than 185 schools in communities across Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin. We serve an additional 3,000 people annually through our broad spectrum of environmental and outdoor learning programs for children, families, seniors and college students.

Wolf Ridge is a place where minds open to the joy and wonder of discovery of our natural world. We seek to stimulate a love and understanding of nature by involving children and adults in direct observation of and participation on the outdoors and promote self-awareness and leadership development in the process.

Activities and classes at Wolf Ridge are nearly all outdoors, typically three hours in length. Fifty-seven different classes or activities are available, although many are seasonally dependent. Class subjects include environmental science, cultural history, contemporary environmental issues, personal growth, team building and outdoor recreation.
