|Minnesota Master Naturalist Class – BWBR – Long Lake Conservation Center Big Woods Big Rivers|
|MAEE Partner||University of Minnesota Extension|
|Time:||08:00 am - 05:00 pm|
Long Lake Conservation Center in Aitkin County, invites ADULTS to summer camp! This learning experience is a Minnesota Master Naturalist Certification course and an opportunity for kids at heart to experience the joys, memories, and thrills of summer camp. Campers explore the Big Woods, Big River Biome in Aitkin County (the county with most of the Mississippi River). We discover the natural history of this biome by going on geology treks, observing wildlife, and learning about the rich cultural history of the region. We connect to this place, the woods, and the mighty Mississippi. In conjunction with our Master Naturalist trainings, we investigate in hands-on learning, like summer campers: we do archery, crafts, have campfires, make friends, and create memories.
Camp BWBR happens at Long Lake Conservation Center, a Residential Environmental Learning Center in Palisade, MN. Only 2.5 hours away from the metro, less than 2 hours away from St. Cloud, and 1 hour away from Duluth; Long Lake is an easy trip to the Northwoods. The camp/course will begin on Monday and is followed by a 40 hour week of learning and exploration. The 40 hours includes multiple field trips, guest speakers, and class in Long Lake’s modern facilities or out on 760 beautiful acres.
