Exploration Week Begins

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday Conserve School students headed out across the Northwoods for Exploration Week. During Exploration Week students spend six days (five nights) either on the trail along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, hiking the North Country Trail or canoeing through the Sylvania Wilderness Area and surrounding lakes. In this blog entry it is my pleasure to share with you a few photos from three of the canoe groups.

You can explore the Sylvania Wilderness virtually using the map above. Over the next few days students will be camping on many of these lakes including Loon Lake, Clark Lake, Crooked Lake and Mountain Lake. For reference The Conserve School campus buildings are located just north east of Big Donahue Lake.

Head of School

Conserve School provides a semester-long immersion for high school students in environmental studies and outdoor activities that deepens their love of nature, reinforces their commitment to conservation, and equips them to take meaningful action as environmental stewards. Thanks to the generosity of Conserve School’s friends and its founder James Lowenstine all accepted students receive significant scholarship support.
