J-Term 2018: Study wolves and predator ecology


Scott Hegrenes

October 15, 2017

The Audubon Center of the Northwoods offers the J-Term course “Wolves and Northwoods Carnivores” that is open to students from around the nation, including Carthage students. The course will be held from Jan. 2-21, 2018 near Ely, MN. The cost is $1,995. 

This J-Term course involves tracking and observing wild and captive wolves, bears, lynx, deer, and more. Map and compass skills, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and winter ecology are part of the curriculum for this hands-on, outdoor learning experience. Each year, a small number of our students enroll in the program, and they always come back energized and inspired! Spots are filling fast, so don’t delay!

To learn more about this amazing adventure, contact Professor Scott Hegrenes (Straz Center, Room 274). If you want to get Carthage credit for the course, there is required paperwork that must be filed with the registrar’s office.
