Good food, roaring fires, nights under the stars, and entertaining classes about the state’s natural history – all of this and more are part of Wildlife Weekend, Feb. 1-3, in Michigan’s north woods. The DNR and the Michigan Alliance for Environmental and Outdoor Education have teamed up to create this fun learning experience at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center on scenic Higgins Lake in Roscommon County.
DNR education manager Kevin Frailey is excited about this development.
“We offer many professional development opportunities at the RAM Center for educators who want to find new ways to bring the outdoors into their classrooms, but Wildlife Weekend is open to anyone 18 or older who’s simply interested in learning more about nature in a relaxing retreat setting,” Frailey said. “Many of the topics we cover are things you’ll hear or read about in the news from week to week.”
