Educational programs for students and adults that promote the sustainability of the region's natural resources for the benefit of communities, economies, and cultures that rely on them.

UW-Extension Environmental Outreach

Paddling on Fish CreekWhether it’s on-the-water, in the field, or a classroom…. here are engaging programs for youth to adult audiences that promote the sustainability of natural resources that our communities and cultures rely on.

Our educational programs weave together traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) of the Lake Superior Ojibwe people, culture, and STEM. We partner with federal, state, tribal partners, citizens, schools and natural resource professionals to address community and natural resource issues affecting the Lake Superior region and beyond.

Programs are offered at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center (NGLVC),  tribal communities, and field sites within Wisconsin’s Lake Superior region. Many can be customized and outreached for your location.
