8/3-5/18 Old-growth Class at Forest Lodge, sign up through Northland College.  

Explore some of the best remaining old-growth stands in northern Wisconsin while learning about the ecology of older forests and the values they offer. We’ll also share writings that reflect upon the beauty, resilience, and “spirit” of these remnant sites. The program takes place at Forest Lodge, a unique and historic estate nestled among 872 acres in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and situated along the pristine shores of Lake Namakagon with a half-mile of undeveloped shoreline. Fairyland State Natural Area, which supports an old-growth hemlock-hardwood forest, lies within the Forest Lodge property. You will also have personal time to explore the grounds and general area, read or relax, or paddle on Lake Namakagon.
