Trees For Tomorrow (TFT) has been offering natural resources education workshops to students, teachers, adults, and others in the heart of Wisconsin’s Northwoods since 1944. TFT is located in Eagle River, WI, a small northern town located about six hours from Chicago, IL; five hours from Minneapolis, MN; and seven hours from Cedar Rapids, IA. Commercial air service is available to Rhinelander, WI, just 30 miles from TFT. Car rentals, shuttle van and taxi service are also available in Rhinelander.
All instructors are carefully selected based on their knowledge, experience, and ability to teach adult groups. Trees For Tomorrow staff have taken courses in each area of instruction to provide participants with a high quality learning experience.
Guests staying at Trees For Tomorrow will find the facilities to have the rustic charm of a Northwoods lodge. Each dormitory style building has a central lounge, a fireplace, and central bathrooms. Guests can request a private room for an added fee or may choose to share a room with another participant.
Home cooked meals are prepared by the Trees For Tomorrow chef and dining staff and served in the historic dining hall on campus. A social hour is held during most workshops so participants have an opportunity to relax and discuss the events of the day with each other.
Full payment for each Adult Workshop is due 30 days prior to the start of the workshop. If not received 30 days in advance, your reservation will be canceled. If a reservation is fully paid, but canceled more than 30 days prior to the start of the workshop, a refund of the full amount (less the $50 deposit) will be made.
No refunds will be made for cancellations less than 30 days prior to the workshop. All fees collected are non-transferable. A non-refundable $50/person deposit for each workshop must be included with registration. Pre-workshop materials will be sent to you 30 days prior to the workshop. Fees include lodging, meals, instruction, and materials unless noted.
