Register for Wisconsin wolf workshop by Aug. 4

As populations of gray wolves in the Upper Midwest grow, more people are reporting encounters with wolves, or tracks and sign. In August 2006, the Timber Wolf Alliance, a program of Northland College's Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute, will offer a weekend workshop for people interested in learning more about the biology, history, behavior and management of wolves. The workshop, scheduled for August 11-13, will be held in prime wolf habitat at the Pigeon Lake Field Station near Drummond.

Workshop activities on Saturday and Sunday will include discussions and presentations with area wildlife biologists, as well as guided tracking experiences in surrounding forests. A training session on Friday evening may be useful for people who would like to volunteer in their communities as members of the Timber Wolf Alliance Speakers Bureau. These volunteers share their knowledge about wolves with school children, civic groups, and other public organizations.

The workshop is open to the public, but registration is required. The deadline for registration is August 4, and the fee covers room and board at Pigeon Lake. Graduate and undergraduate credit is available through Northland College for participation in the workshop. For more information or to register, contact the Timber Wolf Alliance at (715) 682-1223, or e-mail
