Junior Wildlife Biologist Summer Programs for Kids

Time: 3:45 PM - 5 PM
Fee:   $25 per child per session.

Register for all six sessions at a discounted rate. 

The Wolf Conservation Center is excited to launch our newest summer education program “Junior Wolf Biologist” for children entering grades 3-5. During these sessions, we’ll be delving into details about what makes a great field biologist, exploring ecological concepts, and participating in wildlife science through hands-on activities. What surprises might a wildlife biologist find dissecting an owl pellet? How do they set up trail cameras and monitor animal movements through habitats? This and more will be investigated and explored, so inquisitive minds are sure to have a howling good time!

Program will run with a minimum of 4 children and a maximum of 12. Pre-registration is required. Children can register for individual sessions or register for all six at a discounted rate.

Children should come dressed for the outdoors (rain or shine) with a reusable water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray, and hat. Appropriate summer attire for the WCC includes a t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers.

Tick Precautions

When spending time outdoors, it’s necessary to take precautions in order to prevent serious infections, especially Lyme disease. Lyme disease is an infection caused by bacteria and is spread by the bite of a deer tick. Not all deer ticks are infected, so not all tick bites will cause the disease. Despite this, the key thing to be aware of is prevention. Download and print prevention flyers offering great tips!
